I'm always looking for ways to cook rabbit. Honestly for me it's one of those meats that needs a bit of care or else I end up not liking it. My grandma always says to just fry it like chicken. What do you do?

I like to rub it in mustard for about a day. Then I put it in a glass pan with a couple cloves of crushed garlic and a table spoon of butter.  Throw it in the oven at 250 and usually about 1 to 1-1/2 hours it is yummy.

The second way we like it is to rap it in our homemade bacon and smoke with apple at 250 for 1-1/2 hours in the hot smoker.  Sometimes shorter, just depends on how cold out it is.

Grandma always would put it in a crock and made creamy dumplings.  I never got her recipe, but it was really tasty too.

I recently bought a rabbit and a chicken from a local farmer. They were mostly for my cousin's baby which starts to eat regular food.
We cut them up and put most parts in the freezer and I boiled the remaining carcasses - we got a very fat broth from them. I then separated the remaining pieces of meat and put the broth in jars - some of them with the meat and others clear.
She now mixes it with some boiled veggies for the baby, or boils the veggies in the broth.

I guess you were looking for adult recipes ;) but with some more spices it's great food - very soft, delicate, can be a basis for something else.
I think it's a good idea to boil the rabbit before baking it or anything - you get a great broth and the meat is soft. In this case, the rabbit was very lean and smaller than the chicken - which was a fat broiler. Some people suggest that a proper broth should be made of three different meats - so I sometimes add beef (recently I also added smoked pears - a traditional Christmas spice - and the broth smelled great and had a beautiful colour).
 
It looks like it's time for me to write you a reality check! Or maybe a tiny ad!
