By popular request, here is a recipe for Squirrel Gravy, just the way Mary made it! Many a time while we were “Back Home Again In Indiana” Mary Jo and her kinfolk would fix up a large batch of gravy and biscuits for us.


1 squirrel, clean & cook
4 c. cold water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Soak squirrel overnight in salt water. Put squirrel in large kettle, cover well with cold water. Add salt and pepper. Cook until tender. (Save about 2 cups of the water/broth that the squirrel was cooked in to make the gravy.)


3 tbsp. flour
2 c. squirrel broth
2 tbsp. grease
3 c. sweet milk
