A Hunting Wabbit We Will Go

Actually no hunting needed on our part, unless you call opening a rabbit hutch hunting.  This Sunday was the first time in all my many years I actually ate rabbit.  Yes, this former total city girl ate the rabbit she has watched and helped raise.  And it WAS delicious! 

Served up fried and baked.  The fried was a bit on the tough side, but tasty.  My favorite was the baked.  Baked for about 3 hours it was fall off the bone good.

I did not participate in the processing of the rabbits, and I likely should have except the Moose and I were busy with other projects;

Moving pigs around, and building dividing walls to keep them in other areas so we can actually use our garden space for gardening.  No pictures yet, just too busy.

We're starting to get ripened blue berries from our 25+ plants.  Not a lot yet, but the bushes are covered in berries.  There's also a few small mulberries in this bowl.  There is nothing like fresh from the garden berries.


  1. I am not a big fan of rabbit which is a shame since there are so many around here that need killin. Our Blueberries never make it here either, they just won't grow for some reason.

  2. Yeah on the berries! Rabbit stew is very good.

  3. Izzy,

    The last time I had rabbit, my ex-sister in law (from France) made it with a mustard coating and baked it. It actually was very tasty!

    There is nothing better than having your own fresh berries grown from your garden :-)

  4. Yum ! Used to raise them as a kid , supplied a couple grocery stores ( back then it was legal )
    Almost can walk again without a cane !!

  5. What! You're starting to get berries! I'm just getting blooms! Glad to hear you liked the rabbit. Rabbit is one we have decided not to raise, but they do produce some of the best meat.


We love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
