  • Rabbit organs

    For a long time, I was put off by rabbit because it looked so much like cat parts, but primal cooking has made me more adventurous. An "Amish" farm market near us (and I put Amish in parenthesis because I'm not sure how much is actually produced by the Amish vendors) has rabbit every weekend. They are about 3lbs each with about 1lb stewed meat recovered. The rabbits are whole, cleaned, with organs still attached. The young woman I asked didn't know where they got the rabbits, so I'm guessing they are farmed? Anyway, it's a start.

    The liver, I recognized. It was, like, single serving appetizer sized. There were two heart shaped things, one a little bigger than the other, but both pretty close to acorn sized. And then there was one flat, oval, white thing, smaller than the liver, but bigger than the heart looking things. I tossed all the organs, because I read that rabbit fat was nasty and I was afraid of them, but then I looked through the archives here, and rabbit livers and hearts are tasty. So next time I pick up a rabbit, how should I cook these things?

    I used the stewed carcass to make broth. Such a teeny little thing, smaller than a chicken, and only gave me 2 cups of broth, but it smells divine and I will use it like chicken broth, I think, to add a little something extra to a recipe that calls for broth.

    Put it in your pot. Rabbit organs does not last long but you can use them for many things before they're spent.
    By that I mean broth, appetizers and stew from the broth, of course.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

      I once had the good fortune to have rabbit livers cooked in butter, and they were delicious. Mild and smooth - really good. Our friend raised rabbits for food and saved all the livers until she had enough to make a meal.

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
