Sour Rabbit and Gravy. My ancestors are from Alsace. Imagine this is a very old recipe. My grandmother made it often. She served it with my recipe for "Cannon Balls" (potato dumplings). When I was a kid, my mother would try to get my brother and I to eat rabbit (what we felt were our pets). To trick us into eating it, she would buy a pair of chicken wings from the grocer and cook along with the rabbit. Moms can be so tricky. Unsure of yield.
