How do you cook rabbit?

Ive been given an oven ready bunny and aint sure how to cook it.

regularly cooked by my mother when I lived at home, involved slowly cooking the jointed rabbit in a casserole with red wine, shallots, chopped carrots, and sultanas/raisins.

The result was meat that fell from the bone, and a thick, dark gravy which the gods would have paid good money for. We ate it with the straw chips that go with game, and purple sprouting broccoli my father grew. Have a bottle of Riocha on the table, and you're in heaven.

I can now get the same dish in one of my favourite local restaurants - pure coincidence, but a real treat, apart from the Riocha, which I don't drink any more.

Rabbit meat is quite a bit stronger in taste than chicken.
As well as stewing it, you can roast it. You can also make rabbit sausages, which are quite nice, much more tasty than pork.
When I was a kid, dad raised them for meat in a large pen in the garden, later he swapped to guinea pigs, which are easier to raise and taste better.

"I don't ever recall that it tasted anything like chicken"

Are we still talking about rabbit or are we now talking about KFC?

When I was at boarding school in the late 50's we used to supplement our meagre diet with rabbits, which we used to snare.

Once caught they were skinned etc then boiled before frying. Very nice indeed.

Sounds more like Tom Brown's schooldays.

with Black Pudding for tradition

rabbit is a lot healthier than chicken being virtually fat free

But can give you lead poisoning if you're not careful!

Used to love it back in the 50's but haven't fancied it since the mixomatosis problem. I can still see those eyes. Ugh!!!
