DIRECTIONS

  • 1. Soak the rabbit in salted water for 24 hours in the refrigerator. This is not necessary for chicken.
  • 2. Get the vegetable oil hot over medium-high heat in a large skillet or Dutch oven.
  • 3. Pat the rabbit or chicken pieces dry and brown well in the pot.
  • 4. Meanwhile, chop half the capers or green peppercorns.
  • 5. Get your tap water as hot as it will go and fill a 2 cup measure. Crush the saffron in your palm and sprinkle it into the hot water.
  • 6. Once the meat is all browned, remove it to a plate. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until browned.
  • 7. Add everything into the pot. Place the rabbit or chicken pieces into the liquid. If the liquid does not come at least halfway up the sides of the hare pieces.
  • 8. Cover tightly and place wild rabbit in 300 degree oven for 2.5 hours. Domestic rabbit and chicken should only cook for 1.5 hours. Check the Rabbit after 2 1/2 hours; it should be finished.
  • 9. Serve with wild rice, a green salad and a good Cabernet Sauvignon.
