Cooking rabbit

You guys were so helpful when I cooked that ostrich filet last weekend I hope you can help me out with the rabbit too. I've never cooked it, I've never eaten it, but I have a cut-up rabbit to defrost for the weekend that the kid requested and I want him to experience it without drowning it in stews et al. Any suggestions for our first time?

Fry it, just as you would chicken, seasoned with salt and pepper, then into an egg wash, next into flour. Make a cream gravy on the side...

Rabbit is really good and juicy!

I can't deal with this one.

When I was a little kid growing up in the country, I would get the cutest little bunnies at Easter time. Then in August, they would die from the heat.

It wasn't until I was 10 that I discovered what heat induced illness that kept killing my bunnies. A few weeks after they passed away, I found packages in the freezer marked "rabbit'.

I cried and cried. No more bunnies for me! And I never trusted what dad said again.

Chocolatechef, I feel your pain! I had an albino rabbit that died from heat stroke . He was a big baby. After that I was given a brown rabbit & a fow killed it. I don't think I could eat rabbit unless I didn't know what I was eating.

Thanks crews for the sympathy!

Don't let that stop anybody else from eating rabbit though. Those wild rabbits will eat up a garden. They have absolutely no shame.

Practically grew up on a farm. One lesson I learned is never get emotionally attached to anything you're gonna eat.

I think your father was cruel to not tell you the truth from the beginning. If it's a pet, it should be allowed to live out its natural life. I don't blame you for never believing your father again. I wouldn't either.

my dad, raised in co. leitrim, ireland, told me the same stories of raisng turkeys and pigs and goats. he would befriend them, then cry for days when he assisted my grandfather slaughtering them for sale. no wonder he is such a hard, no-nonsense kind of man.

the best story was when he would carry meat or produce down the road to the neighbors for barter to return with 2 buckets of milk on a yolk. one night, as he walked past a bluff, he saw the shadow of the devil looking down on him. he was terrified, and ran all the way home, spilling all of the milk. when he arrived home with the tale, my grandfather just laughed. the next morning, he walked my dad down to the new field by the bluff where he had just moved the goats. what my dad saw was an ol' billy goat looking over the bluff at him, and in the dark, in the imagination of a little boy, the devil appeared...
