~ squirrels, amount depends how hungry you are
~ 1 large onion, chopped
~ couple stalks celery, chopped
~ 1 - 2 carrots, chopped

Clean and quarter squirrels. Add to a large soup pot. Cover with water, beer or chicken stock.

Add the onion, celery, carrots and peppercorns to taste.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until meat is tender.

Remove meat from pot and cool. Remove bones. Keep the meat in nugget size pieces.

In a bowl, mix some flour and beer together to a "gravy consistency". Season to taste with paprika.

Dip the nuggets into the batter and deep fry to a golden brown.

Serve with ketchup, ranch dressing or homemade plum jam for dipping.


* Domenick says the favorite dipping sauce at their camp is the homemade plum jam.
