Many thanks to Ramae Schuver of Iowa for sending this recipe.

~ 1 turtle, cut into serving pieces
~ flour
~ seasoning salt
~ pepper
~ oil
~ 3 cans cream of mushroom soup
~ 2 soup cans milk
~ potatoes, cubed
~ carrots, diced
~ 1 small onion, chopped

Soak turtle meat in salt water overnight. Rinse well.

Season flour to taste with the seasoning salt and pepper.

In a skillet, heat the oil. Roll the turtle in the flour and brown on all sides.

In a large bowl, mix the soup and milk together really well.

Place the meat in a dutch oven and cover it with the soup mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 2 - 3 hours depending on the size of your turtle.

Half way through the baking time, add the potatoes, carrots and onion. Resume baking until the potatoes and carrots are done.

Serve using the soup mixture as gravy.
