Last night Wolf and I had rabbit. He cooked it on high in the crockpot for 4.5 hours and it came out really dry. Suggestions?
It was the first time either of us had rabbit — we got it from the Gitches who also sold us our pig. — so we didn’t know what to suspect. For sides we had mashed potato and stuffing, a Sunday dinner of sorts. It was a good dinner but, like I said, it was dry.
The rabbit tasted like chicken. Everyone kept telling me rabbit tasted like chicken but I didn’t really believe the individuals who told me because, well, how can a mammal taste like a fowl? But, you know, they were right. It really did taste like chicken. Even had the same texture. Strange.
It was a little expensive $5/lb so I’m not sure how often we’ll eat rabbit. Wolf and I started talking about getting a couple of breeding pair to raise ourselves but Wolf started to balk at the idea. He’s not sure if he can cull the rabbits. In his words “bunnys are soft and furry and cute. You want to pet them. Besides, the carcass looks like a cat and I don’t think I can eat cat.” Then he started making moon faces at Francesca and Harley.
Anyways, we’ll see about the rabbits. Maybe.
