Recipe for Huckabee Fried Squirrel

Take one varmint. Put in the popcorn popper until golden brown. Dig in on fried squirrel goodness! It tastes like KFC, except somehow more ... southern.

The details:

Dress squirrel.

Wash thoroughly.

Cut in pieces for servings.

Cover with salt water.

Let stand overnight. Drain.

If squirrel is not tender, parboil 10 minutes. Drain.

Roll in flour.

Fry in vegetable oil until tender.

If the squirrel is young, parboiling is unnecessary.

Make a brown sauce.

Serve squirrel garnished with lemon slices and parsley.
