When I was a little girl, my family and I went to a family reunion. While there I fell in love with a homemade buffalo wing, ok wings, many many wings. I am surprised I didn't get sick. These things were great.
After awhile my Uncle comes over and asks how I am liking the food. I informed him that I loved it with a big BBQ sauce stained grin. he looks at me and says,
good, I love that squirrel meat just as much.
I stopped eating them right then. I never knew if he was teasing or not. I actually wouldn't doubt that it was squirrel.
I have never seen squirrel meat for sale, to be honest I never really looked for it. But it is there and people do eat it. Yet another local food for you.
