Probably should have posted this over in the food prep forum, but thought more squirrel hunters would read it here. Found it in Field and Stream last spring. I basically cut the recipe in half, and added a can of whole corn. I renamed it "limb chicken chowder" grin

Do you dice the squirrel into "clam" sized pieces, or is this more of a gravy?

You can pressure cook or slow cook the squirrel, until the meat easily comes off the bone. You can cut it up any way you want. Eat it in a bowl like soup, with crackers etc.

The Limb Chicken Chowder turned out great, In fact I ate so much I don't think the yard is going to get mowed today, like I planned. I followed the recipe exactly but, I felt it would have been a little better if I would have added a little corn.
now I'm out of Tree rat I better go back out in the Morning.

killahog, first time I made the recipe, I basically cut it in half, but did add a can of whole corn. My son said it was awesome, but next time add TWO cans! grin

My wife made this recipe this past week, just as it is listed. Makes a BUNCH of chowder! And is it RICH AND GOOD! No, its GREAT!!

I shared it with a couple family members and took 3 qt. jars to work and gave to buddies and they flipped over it.

It'll sure be one we cook up again! thanks!

I haven't made any, yet this fall, but as soon as it gets colder, I'm gonna make some up. Next time your wife makes it, have here put a can or two of whole corn in it. It's awesome!

Made a batch using 6 large mature fox squirrels last nite. Did add one can of corn to the recipe. IT IS VERY GOOD. I love chowder, but never attempted to make it.

Well, my first pot of the fall is in the cooking process. Pressure cooked the squirrels, and the veggies are simmering. Glad you boys liked it! grin

I almost made myself sick after eating the third bowl. It is a very rich soup that you just can't walk away from. Have 4 quarts in jars that I am going to give to buddy's tomorrow. Thanks much for the recipe.

I've had 4 bowls full the past 2 days and having more for dinner this evening. Sent a container full to the MILs and froze some up for a buddy who owns the property the rats came from.

Dang you Dog! grin
