    my grandparents love to make this one :

    4-5 squirrels
    1 large onion
    salt & pepper

    prepare the squirrels leave on the heads .. remove the eyes and clean ..
    soak in salt water for 2-3 hours ..
    in large black 3 legged pot place squirrels, onion, water to cover
    cook until tender salt and pepper to taste ..
    for a gravy sauce take some of the broth from the pot mix with some flour ..
    put back into pot stirring occasionally to to get a good consistent gravy throughout the pot

    Squirrel Stew, Carolina Style

    2 squirrels, cleaned, cut into 6 pieces each

    2 c bouillon

    leafy tops of 2 stalks of celery

    1/8 lb salt pork, 1/2" cubes

    2 c fresh lima beans

    2 tbs flour

    2 lg ripe tomatoes, peeled

    1 tsp salt

    1 c fresh corn kernels

    1/4 tsp pepper

    1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

    2 lg onions, thinly sliced

    1-2 tbs flour

    Fry salt pork until very crisp, then remove pieces from the pan. Dredge squirrel in seasoned flour and sauté in hot fat until brown on all sides. When nearly brown, add onions and cook until soft. Place meat in Dutch oven, together with broth and celery tops. Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hour. Remove celery tops, add lima beans, tomatoes, corn and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and bake until vegetables are tender-about 30 min. Skim off excess fat and thicken gravy with flour and 1/2 c cold water. Serve hot topped with crisp pork cracklings.
