    Fox squirrels, not skinny little gray squirrels.

    We always soaked the parts in heavily salted water for a few hours before applying them to the skillet. Helps to remove the game taste. This recipe sounds great. Now all I need is a few squirrels...

    Where exactly does a city boy like me find squirrel? Our local Ralph's Market doesn't carry anything like that!
