Squirrel Stew Inside Out from BBC Food Blog to Loftin Baptist Church

French like eating snails and rabbits and quite a few other things yet I don't remember hearing anyone mentioning Squirrel Stew as a favorite dish until I saw Wm. Hovey Smith, a Georgia native, do it for the BBC Food Blog. He thinks that's a good way to deal with squirrel overpopulation where it exists.

Echoing that piece, Katie Connolly (BBC News, Washington) asks Is squirrel the perfect austerity dish? I wonder how my fellow New Jerseyans feel about that one?

Ben Wingate in Squirrel stew supper an annual event for Loflin Baptist Church (Alabama Baptist Online, 2002) writes that 'members of Loflin Baptist Church, Banks, have their annual squirrel stew supper as soon as winter rolls in and enough squirrels can be collected for a feast — a tradition that has been held for more than 30 years.'


The Squirrel Nut Stew play by play (October 2007) offered by Adventures in Food including illustration above kinda grosses me out actually, not sure why.

Squirrel and Prejudice?
