I was going through some old recipes and I found this. Thought old CB might want to add another dish to his collection.

Squirrel Stew
3-4 squirrels
2 cups chopped onion
1 chup chopped green onion
1 cup chopped bell pepper
1.5 cups chopped celery
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 cup parsely or 1/4 cup dried parsley
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp salt and pepper
1 cup sauterne wine
1 dash of bitters
2 cups of water
1 tsp hot sauce

Make a roux with 1/2 cup bacon drippings and 3/4 cup flour. When this is good and brown add onion, celery and bell peppers and cook for a spell. Then add green onions and parsley. Pour in water, wine hot sauce, bitters, garlic and soy sauce. Put squirrel in last and simmer for a few hours.
I found a recipe in one of my grandmother's cookbooks for woodchuck stew...sounds like it would be a little gamey.

what are bitters?
Scratched my head on that one too. I think bitters are used in mixed drinks. Kinda like a liquor.
