Quick note. You can freeze the soup in tupperware type bowls, thaw it out, nuke it in the microwave, and it's just as good as coming right off the stove!

Well, just shut off the pressure cooker......got 8-9 "limb chickens" in it. Gonna bone out the meat and store for tomorrow. Got a buddy coming over and we're gonna make a full pot of the chowder. Then, weather permitting, we are going for a midday hunt! grin

Thought I'd let you guys know. While I was deboning the squirrels[the meat was falling off the bone], I had 1 squirrel in the bunch that was so old/tough, that I couldn't pull the meat off the bone. Those 4 pieces went to the waste basket. grin

For anybody that wants to know, I pressure cooked the squirrels for a little over 30 minutes at 10 lbs. of pressure.

Sounds like an awesome recipe and one that I am going to try soon. Can somebody expand on the parboiling technique, like for how long and at what temperature?

Thanks for your time

Throw them in some salted water with some onions, boil for about 5 minutes, cool and peel.

Because more guys are finally getting out to hunt "limb chickens", and we have some guys who never saw the recipe, from last yr., I'm giving this thread a one time bump. I gotta get busy and make a batch.....my freezer is gettin' full. grin

Squirrels are not very plentiful around here yet this year, but was able to killer three this morning and have the chowder cooking on the stove. Been waiting all summer for this. This has got to be a top 10 dish that I have every made.

I put the old tough ones in the bag in the freezer labeled "maddog stew." I parboil in some stock--garlic, onions, little chicken stock, salt, pepper, bay-leaf. It flavors them up a little.

The young tender suckers get chicken-fried...

Wish I could find some young tender ones.... grin

Two thirds of the squirrels I've shot this year have been older males and females.

Down here the little ones are scampering around. They'll drive you nuts when you're deer hunting. Of the dozen or so I've shot this Fall, about half have been tender little pups. They fry up beautifully--melt off the bone--but they sure are tiny in a scope.

I had an old boar simmer for a good hour and a half once before it softened up. But it made some good taco meat, which is the other recipe I use the older ones in besides your stew. They take some tugging and gnawing if you fry 'em.

I thawed out 3 squirrels I had previously killed to add to the 5 I took last week for "chowder". I placed all of the pieces in the pressure cooker for 30 minutes using beef stock for moisture. There must have been one old limb chicken in the mix, because even after 30 minutes....I had 4 quarter pieces of what you could compare to "Super-Ball" material... grin All the rest just fell off the bone.

I'm guessing this will work with rabbits as well. You guys that have tried it do you think it would work with game birds, or maybe even a combination of whatever you happen to have left in the freezer???

Yep, it'll work. Any dark meat wild or tame will work in the recipe.

If you use the full recipe you'll have enough to feed Coxey's army.

I've thrown as high as 12 squirrels in the full recipe, even though it only calls for 4-8. I think you can add even more corn than I do, or even try other veggies. Last batch, I put in more cheeses than it called for. Lotsa room for sperimenting.....grin

I add more cheese...never a bad thing. Toss in some sliced mushrooms..corn...anything that suits you. This recipe has no boundaries. Just stick with the basics..

If anything, I bet I'll eat it. Can't speak for the rest of the household.
