Is anyone interested in getting together for a group processing with rabbits. If you have rabbits that are ready or want to come help/learn. More hands make light the work and builds community. We do need a central location so anyone intersted email me.
Bunny enchiladas... slow cook rabbit with some liquid (water or chicken broth) until the meat falls off the bone. Pick the meat from the bones and shred. Steam corn tortillas until soft, then spread with enchilada sauce (homemade or canned, I heat it up a bit either way) and then add shredded rabbit. Roll the tortillas and place in a greased casserole. Pour additional enchilada sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle with shredded cheese (I like cheddar but use whatever's on sale). Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Seeing as we had a productive spring, I will have enough rabbit to try tamales and will probably give green chile rabbit tamales a try.
Sorry that I missed the gathering. We just got back into town.
As far as recipes. I use rabbit for anything calling for precooked chicken. I boil the rabbit with onions, carrots, celery, salt and pepper. Debone and shred. Rabbit and dumplings. Rabbit pot pie. rabbit catch-a-tory (pardon the spelling), rabbit a-la-king. rabbit salad sandwhich. Pretty simply. Chicken tastes like how you season it. Rabbit tastes like white meat chicken. Be mindful that it is drier.
Well I'm a few months late >.< Any chance you'll be doing another one of these in the next few months?
Send me a eMail when you get ready... I'm interested..

sure it will probably be in january when our kits are big enough.
Do you have rabbits now??
Treasa, depending on where and when I'd like to attend just to kind of get a feel for what's involved and see if it's something I'd realistically be able to handle. Please let me know when you're scheduling this, thanks.
I will try to come too. My kits are already in the freezer and the new ones will not be old enough yet. But I can help this time with no restrictions.
