Recipe by KT Scarlet

When we moved to the country, we had a kind neighbor that welcomed us and shared knowledge with us. He had raised meat rabbits for many years and was very excited when I showed interest in cooking one up. Mr. Perkey shared this recipe with me, and while I've tried other rabbit recipes out there, I really enjoy this one the best. Maybe it's homage to his memory - he passed away November of 2012 - but me, my husband and three little ones all gobble this up.
