Tastes like chicken!



Duddits' biggest reason for hunting is that it saves him a trip to the grocery store. He isn't going to stop eating meat so he might as well go out and get it himself, what could be more organic than that?

BRUNSWICK STEW



3 squirrels (1/2lb of chicken for the faint of heart)
12 cups water
1 bay leaf
1/2lb bacon
1 cup lima beans
1 cup whole kernel corn
4 medium potatoes
2 cups tomatoes (chopped)
1 medium onion (chopped)
1 tbsp sugar
½ tsp black pepper
½ cup butter
Flour
Salt & Pepper to taste


Bring water and bay leaf to a boil
Put 3 squirrels in water and boil for 1.5 hours or until tender, skimming off any scum that might accumulate



Remove bay leaf and discard
Remove squirrels and pull the meat from the bones



Reserve liquid in pot
Chop the meat and put it back into the pot



Cut bacon into 1-inch strips and add to pot (You can cut whole package instead o dealing with individual slices, especially when bacon is well chilled or partly frozen)




Add onion


Let simmer for 2 hours removing scum if any accumulates
Add lima beans, corn and potatoes and tomatoes



Simmer for 2 hours stirring from time to time
Mix butter and flour into paste balls


Bring stew to a quick boil and add paste balls


Reduce heat and stir for 10 minutes
 Test for seasoning and add salt or pepper if desired
Should be served hot but is even better when heated up the next day!
 

We were really glad that we halved this recipe, we split it when it was done and it lasted me a week!
