And maybe we'll do in a squirrel or two*
As promised, here are the results of the Burghfield jury.

qatsi's Stuffed Roasted Squirrel
Serves 2

2 squirrels
1 crust of bread
2 cooking apples (medium-sized)
a generous handful of hazelnuts
a generous handful of sage

Preheat oven to 190°C.

To prepare the stuffing, grate bread crust. Put the hazelnuts in a freezer bag and bash with a rolling pin to produce coarse chunks. Tear sage leaves. Peel and dice apple. Mix all the ingredients together and stuff the squirrels. They have quite a small cavity so tie them with string once stuffed. Leave the livers in if you like them or feel experimental - they are distinctive but relatively mild in flavour.

Roast in the oven for about half an hour, until the juices run clear.

I think it tastes a little like turkey; kharin reckons more like rabbit.

I'm happy to take your word for it...

Though I believe C18 seamen used to regard rats as a delicacy - and what is a squirrel but a rat with a bushy tail and good PR?
