    We got seven rabbits the other day out hunting. Decided to make a pot of rabbit soup for dinner! 5 quarts of homegrown quartered tomatos from the garden, some vegetables, 5 cloves of garlic, couple big onions, and a smidge of brown sugar, along with a couple bunnies!!! It's gonna be serious tonight folks!:wink::roll_eyes::smile2: rollo

    I use it for other meats, like deer steaks etc. Rabbit, is pretty tender. I just boil it down first, then shred it. I like to use the canner because of the size. You can never make too much:smile2: rollo

    We don't have a whole helk of alot around here where I hunt. Rarely see them. Raising them might be the ticket, I saw them in the grocery store the other day, $14/lb!!!!! :eek:oooh::smile2:

    Reheated? Whenever I tried to reheat rabbit stew, it was totally inedible; the dog wouldn't even eat it! I asked around, and was told that you couldn't reheat rabbit stew. Is there some secret to it?

    Maybe it's because it was the Easter Bunny. I figured that, like beef stew, it would be even better the next day. My roomie and I were renting a house on an acre of land, and we came in Easter Morning, well into the grape. As we pulled alongside the house, the headlights picked up the Easter Bunny hopping around in the back yard. I told my roomie to keep it in the headlights while I got my .22 out of the house. When I came back out, he was doing donuts in the back yard, chasing the rabbit. Somehow, I managed to pick the right rabbit out of the several I was seeing, and we had the Easter Bunny. The stew was absolutely great just after I fixed it, but the next day, it was toxic. Still don't know why.

    Jerry, that wasn't rabbit... Rabbit is always better the next day, that musta' been possum... Both possum and cat (Red Cat Stew) are terrible the next day !!!!!:smile2:

    Naw, it was rabbit all right. And I had the same results with jackrabbits a couple of years later.
