OK Don, I do enjoy the rabbits I catch. A few of the recipes are really good and some not so much. I'm sure i'll find more over time. My favorite recipe is shown below. It is AMAZING!!!


1 rabbit
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
425 grams diced tomatoes
1 cup red wine
1 cup water
100 grams button mushrooms (sliced)
125 grams bacon (shortcut, sliced)
2 carrots (medium, chopped)
2 onion (medium, chopped)
2 stalks celery (chopped)
1 bay leaf
1 tsp oregano
1/4 cup flour


1.) Grind pepper over the rabbit and place in the crock pot.
2.) Combine all other ingredients EXCEPT FLOUR in a large bowl, mix well and pour over the rabbit.
3.) Cover and cook on low for 6 hours for a small rabbit, or up to 8 hours for a large rabbit. Actually cook for half an hour less as below.
4.) Thirty minutes before ready blend flour with 1/2 cup of water until it is a smooth paste, add to the pot and stir well to thicken and continue cooking covered for a further 30 minutes.
5.) Give it a good stir and allow to rest 10-15 minutes before serving.
6.) At this point the rabbit should be so tender that you can tear pieces off with a fork to serve rather than cut. Just scoop it all out onto a plate.
7.) You'll end up with bones in the dish so eat much like you would a fish dish being careful for bones. Serve along with a nice crusty roll to soak up the juices.
