Mike West's Squirrel Stuff

Fried Squirrel and Gravy

1 Squirrel; cut into 7 pieces
1 c Flour; seasoned with
1/2 ts Each salt and pepper
1/2 c Crisco; for frying
Milk; for gravy
Put seasoned flour into small paper bag. Put squirrel, one or two pieces at a time into bag and shake to coat with flour. Meanwhile melt crisco in cast-iron skillet. Put squirrel pieces into pan and brown on both sides. Reduce heat, cover skillet, and cook for about 20 minutes, or until done. Pour off about half the fat. Stir in flour from the bag until you have a very thin roux, or put about 2 Tbs. of the flour into a jar with a tight-fitting lid and add milk, then put on the lid and shake until the flour is dissolved and all the lumps have gone. Make sure you scrape up all the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add milk, stirring, and bring to a boil. If the gravy is too thick, add more milk. If it is too thin add more flour and milk mixture and reheat to a boil.
