Ingredients:  
Cut a dressed squirrel into serving pieces, sprinkle with salt and pepper and dredge in flour.

Fry squirrel in a heavy iron skillet over medium high heat, turning often. Whether you are using oil or lard to fry with, keep about 1/2 inch of oil in the bottom of the pan while frying.

When the pieces are golden brown, remove them from the pan, carefully pour the oil or lard into container. It is best to let the pan cool a bit before doing this.

Return the squirrel to the skillet with about one inch of water added. Cover with a heavy lid. Reduce heat and simmer for about an hour.

Another method is to put the fried pieces into a baking dish with a bit of water and bake them in a 350 oven for about an hour. If baked uncovered the pieces should be turned several times.
