Wood Chuck Stew
« on: July 11, 2009, 04:45:37 pm »
The following is my recipe for Wood Chuck stew.

Plant 6 celery, 3 broccoli,3 pepper, 6 dill plants,1 row of peas and 1 row of green beans in the garden.

When these have all dissapeared(usually only one or two days), your Wood Chuck should be fat enough.

Then take your bow and arrows and go shoot that Wood Chuck!


Skin and quarter your Wood Chuck and par boil him in salted water for 20-30 min.

chop and render 4 slices of Bacon.
add quartered wood Chuck.
1 Lg. Onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 Lg. carrot, chopped
2 Bay Leaves

When Onion is translucent add,
1 can of BEER
1 cup of chicken stock
water if needed
Bring to a boil,cover, reduce heat, simmer 2-2.5 hrs.

Remove from heat, let cool, pull meat from bones and return pot to stove,
Add meat,
1 cup frozen or fresh peas
6 Lg. Mushrooms, sliced.
S+P to taste
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 min. until done.


Garnish with shredded Cheddar and Chives.

Sounds very tasty. Now I want to go find me a groundhog to skewer.

Tastes very good. One of my famiily's favorites. I usually slow roast it with carrots, onions, celery and potatoes. Even the old ones come out tender and tasty. Haven't gotten one with a bow yet though. Nice shooting!

When dressing a groundhog, I would suggest removing the glands/fatty tissue from under it's armpits.  Groundhog is quite yummy.  I pretty much lived on it during the economically challenging spring semester in college.  But, I  would not suggest BBQ-ing one.  I tried it once, it was nasty.  Stay with the pot roast, stew recipes.

I reckon that a fella could throw most any meat into that recipe and it would be good vittles.  '  Frank

I like me some groundhog, it's good fixed a lot of different ways (almost identical to deer meat). Hedgeapple, I disagree-barbecued groundhog is really good-I've fed it to people who thought it was pork and went back for seconds and thirds. :) Like anything else, it's all in how you handle, clean, and treat it-plus, there's a big difference between an old rank boar and a nice young fat'un.

Hillbilly,
I see that fat old boar every now and then, he lives by my neighbor, Billie's old barn.
So far I've gotten two of the three young ones.

I told Billie (she's 87 years old) that I got two of them with my bow, and I guess she could not understand why I was using a bow,
because she asked me if I owned a gun?
I told her, oh yea I had a gun to hunt with,
and she said,
"well I got a shotgun and that old Wood Chuck better watch out" :D

In this town Billie is a legandary cook, I'm sure she'd know how to cook a Wood Chuck.

Guy's,
I don't know if I should be flattered or insulted.
I posted my "Woodchuck stew" recipe on a callmakers website and those jokers over there suggested,
 that with glasses we could be TWINS!!!

I don't know about you guy's,
But I fail to see any resemblance!
