How to make it

  • 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.
  • Serve When Ready and Tender!!!
