Rabbit in olive oil

I found this recipe in a gun mag

Rabbit should be skinned and gutted and soaked in salt water or milk overnight

Ingredients
Rabbit
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Method
Remove rabbit from the water or milk rinse in clean water
Place it in a large pan cover with water and bring to the boil
Simmer for 2 to 3 hrs or until the meat starts to flake of the bone
Drain and let the rabbit cool, remove all the meat and place into a Tupperware container,
Add a good pinch of sea salt and cover with olive oil, place in refrigerator this should keep for up to 2 weeks.

Rabbits are few and far between in this area but I would like to try this recipe myself I think I would add a little garlic.

I remember you mentioning there were no rabbits around your way.

You want to try and start a breeding colony with a couple of these

but only if you really, really like rabbit stew ;)

At least we have ferrets the right size to hunt them.

I often wonder if the giant rabbits have more fat on them, rabbits get to eat boring because they lack fat.

I'm out of rabbit and my shooting skills seem to have gone to pot. I will try this when I get a chance though, it might go well in my sandwiches for work with a bit of cheese and some nice chutney.
I'll put my recipe for rabbit stew and dumplings up when I can remember it, simple and effective.

I have heard of magpie being eaten, it was somewhere on this forum. Apparently it tastes like roast beef:eek:

I think I would draw the line at rat, unless my life depended on it.
