How to Make Squirrel Soup


  1. Wash and quarter 3 or 4 good-sized squirrels. Put them in a gallon of cold water with a small tablespoonful of salt.
  2. Cover the pot, and simmer gently, do not boil.
  3. Add Irish potatoes, corn lima beans and other veggies.
  4. Strain the soup through a coarse colander when the meat has boiled to shreds, so as to get rid of the squirrel’s troublesome little bones.
  5. Return to the pot and bring to a boil. Thicken with a piece of butter rubbed in flour. Add celery and chopped parsley leaves.
  6. Toast two slices of bread, cut them into dice one-half inch square, fry them in butter, put them into the bottom of your tureen, and then pour the soup boiling hot upon them.
