    evelyn/athens's Note:

    I love rabbit. It's tasty and low in fat and lends itself to as many recipes as chicken (in fact, try replacing rabbit in your favourite chicken recipe). This recipe is especially flavourful. A great winter meal to have in front of the fireplace.

      I can't follow a recipe to save my life, but I followed this one, as I have never cooked rabbit before. The result was FANTASTIC! One of the best things I have ever cooked.

      This was really excellent and the whole family liked it. Thank you evelyn/athens. I added garlic to the sauteed onions and butter (can't live without it),I didn't have caraway seed, so had to omit it, and I had to top up the casserole with more chicken stock after about 1 hour, but other than that made the recipe as written. The sour cream works wonderfully at the end. Yummy!
