And they are good with some red wine and a lot of garlic.
I have eaten Ground Hog, like a large squirell and not bad if a young one.
You know I will have to take your word on that but does it taste like chicken
I like barbecued spotted owl breast much better.
No, more like squirell or as other have said rabbit. Ground hogs are totaly vegetarians, damn, maybe I need to eat other vegetarians, stopping now before I get in trouble.
Ground Hog in Sour cream
1 Groundhog, skinned & cleaned
1/2 cup Vinegar
1 tablespoon Salt
2 quarts Water
2 teaspoons Soda
1/2 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Allspice
1/2 cup Bacon fat
3 small Wild onions
1/2 cup Water
1 cup Sour cream
Skin and clean the groundhog. Wash and dry and put in an earthen crock. Cover with water and a half cup of vinegar and 1 T. of salt. Let stand in a cool place overnight. In the morning, remove from brine, wash and pat dry with a damp cloth. In a large soup kettle combine 2 qt. of water and 2 T. of soda. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, removing the scum as it rises to the surface. Drain and rinse the groundhog meat and cut into serving pieces. Combinethe flour, salt and allspice and dredge the pieces of meat in the mixture. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Melt the bacon fat in a heavy iron frying pan until smoking. jBrown meat on all
sides. Transfer the browned meat into a greased 4 qt. casserole.Arrange sliced onions on top, add water, cover and bake in a preheated oven for 2 hours or until the meat is tender. Transfer the meat to a heated platter to keep warm. Put the casserole on top of the stove over medium heat and spoon in the sour cream stirring constantly. Do not let the sauce come to a boil. Put the meat back into the casserole and simmer for about 15 minutes. Delicious served with creamed dandelion leaves.
Rise and shine, campers, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today.
Thank you for skewering the dumbest of American Holidays.
Shameless morning crowd bump.
hey, marteen, you goin up Punxatawney this AM? ; )
Cold??? Heck it is 60 degrees outside.
And I was just called for jury duty on Groundhog day. Amazing.
Well, somebody had to do it!!!
You really should have posted this recipe 4 days ago... (curing time).
My friend cooks groundhog from time to time, but he bakes it in the oven. A completely different recipe than yours.
If you get a young one, and put a rack under it to keep it off the bottom of the baking pan,(they tend to be greasy from all the fat they carry) it can be very tasty!
Interesting fact. After ground hog goes in hole, run up and whistle three times, dumb bastard sticks his head out giving you a final shot.
That movie was so funny. Thank you.
