You know you're in Minnesota when...

You open a local cookbook and the first recipe you see has a main ingredient of:

1 squirrel, cut up


I love it here. :)

That sounds great! To tell the truth with the economic recession and all I'm surprised more creative recipes aren't being circulated. People are constantly trying to get rid of squirrels... well, there's dinner in the birdfeeder!

what does squirrel taste like?
actually I'm a vegan, so I shouldn't ask, but I'm dreadfully curious.

I suppose it would depend a lot on what they were eating recently, I've had squirrels in the fall when they are fat from nuts and foraging and they were very tasty! Kind of like rabbit or duck - a slightly darker, more flavorful kind of fatty meat.
I was vegan for awhile, too, so I don't feel bad elaborating on that - heh, you asked! :)

One question why would anyone want to eat a squrriel?

To a certain extent, meat is meat! Predators usually don't taste good at all but most of the herbivores have a pretty similar flavor. Squirrels don't taste bad at all!

So what's the rest of the recipe? I've always wanted to know how to make squirrel pudding.

Just grab your spatula and wait by the side of the road! ;)

I want to come over for dinner. XD

My parents and grandparents used to feed me lutefisk. I've never had squirrel though!
