Work well together with the hands.
Form into 16 compact balls.
Heat the oil, shortening or lard slowly to 365 degrees in a 3-quart saucepan.
The fat can be reused if you strain it through cheesecloth, pour into a clean jar and keep it in a cool place until needed.) Fry the forcemeat balls, 3-4 at a time, until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
Turn once during the cooking time.
Drain on paper towel.
Garnish jugged hare.
For stuffing, combine all the ingredients except the fat.
Do not form into balls.
