Amish Squirrel

Ready in: 2 hours 45 minutes

3 large squirrels, skinned and gutted

1/2 cup butter

2 onions, sliced

3 tablespoons white vinegar

1/8 teaspoon dried thyme salt and pepper to taste

18 pitted prunes

1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

1 cup cold water

Clean squirrels thoroughly and pat dry. Cut into 1-inch cubed pieces. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Over medium heat, melt the butter in a large skillet. Add squirrel and fry until just browned, about 6 minutes. Add the squirrel pieces to a large Dutch oven or crock. Meanwhile add onions to the butter in the skillet. Cook until tender and browned, stirring occassionally. Pour the onions and butter into the pot with the squirrel. Fill the pot with enough water to almost cover the meat. Add the vinegar and season with thyme, salt and pepper. Cover and place in the oven. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and add the prunes. Return to the oven and reduce the heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Continue baking for another 45 minutes. Remove the pot from the oven, and use a slotted spoon to remove the meat and prunes. Move to a serving dish. Mix the flour and cold water together in a cup. Set the pot on the stove and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and water and simmer, stirring constantly, until it turns to thick gravy and is able to coat a metal spoon. Serve the squirrel and prunes topped with gravy wit mash potato’s.

Maple Bourbon Glazed Grilled Raccoon Recipe

Ingredients
1 young raccoon
quartered
2 tablespoons BBQ rub
Sauce
1 cup real maple syrup
we use the excellent syrup from
1/2 cup bourbon
we used Jim Beam Bonded 100 proof
3 tablespoons butter
1 shallot
finely chopped

Cooking Instructions
Skin and dress the raccoon by cutting into four leg sections and the back. Remove the pea-sized scent or musk gland from each leg near where it meets the body. There are several YouTube videos that will show you exactly where these glands are located.
Make the sauce. Melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until softened. Add the syrup, the bourbon, and the coffee rub. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
Rub the raccoon all over with the BBQ rub. Grill over medium heat, 300 degrees for 90 minutes. Baste with maple bourbon sauce every 15 minutes. Flip halfway through cooking time.

Kentucky Burgoo

Ingredients
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 to 2 squirrels or rabbits, cut into serving pieces
2 to 3 pounds venison, 3 to 4 inches wide, cut into large pieces
3 to 5 pheasant legs/thighs, bone-in
1 green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 quart pheasant or chicken stock
1 quart beef or game stock
1 28- ounce can crushed tomatoes
2 large potatoes
1 bag of frozen corn, about a pound
1 bag of frozen lima beans or canned black-eyed peas, about 14 ounces
Salt and pepper
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco or other hot sauce on the side

Instructions
Pour the oil into a large Dutch oven or soup pot and set the heat to medium-high. Working in batches, brown all the meats. Do not crowd the pan or the meat will not brown well. Salt the meat as it cooks. As they brown, move the various meats to a bowl.
Add the onions, carrots, celery and green pepper to the pot and turn the heat to high. Cook the vegetables until they are well browned; you might need to add a little more oil to the pot. When the vegetables have browned, add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add back the meats, along with the chicken and beef broths and the tomatoes. Stir to combine and add salt to taste. Bring to a simmer, cover, reduce the heat and simmer gently for 2 hours.
Fish out the meat pieces. Strip the pheasant and squirrel off the bone. Tear the large pieces of venison into bite-sized pieces. The reason you did not do this right at the start is because venison will stay moister when it cooks in larger pieces. Return all the meat to the pot and return the stew to simmer.
Peel and cut the potatoes into chunks about the same size as the meat pieces. Add them to the stew and simmer until they are tender. Add the Worcestershire sauce, mix well and taste for salt. Add more Worcestershire sauce to taste if needed.
Finally, add the corn and lima beans. Mix well and cook for at least 10 minutes, or longer if you’d like. Serve with cornbread and a bottle of hot sauce on the side.
