Re: how does squirrell taste?
I think they taste a lot like cottontail, I cook them the same way. Par boiled with a carrot, some cellery stalks and pepper corns till they are tender, then shake them in a bag of flour , salt and pepper and fry them in bacon fat, crisp on the outside, moist and white meat on the inside. Dublin, did you know there is a disease similar to mad cow disease that occurs in appalachia from those people eating squirrel brains. I sure would never try it.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
