Catholic Recipe: Brunswick Stew
In England squirrel hunting was the traditional sport of Saint Andrew's Eve, and since the Andermas customs of England were also transplanted to the southern part of the United States where squirrel hunting is popular, we suggest a Brunswick Stew.
Soak the beans overnight. Clean and disjoint the squirrels, dust with flour and salt and pepper, and brown lightly in a little fat. Place the meat, the beans, the bacon, and the onions in a pot, cover with boiling water and simmer for two hours. Then add the corn, tomatoes, okra, potatoes, Worcestershire sauce, and sugar and simmer for another hour. Mix a little flour with water and stir into the stew to thicken. Taste for seasoning and serve in a large tureen.Recipe Source: Feast Day Cookbook by Katherine Burton and Helmut Ripperger, David McKay Company, Inc., New York, 1951
