We harvested rabbit this week, setting aside a couple for ourselves. Rabbit + bacon is always a good thing but when we saw this video we knew we had to try it. Now, he uses pancetta but we’re working with what we’ve got. I can’t just go butcher a pig so I can make some pancetta can I? Well…
He shows how to debone it here:
So we put those videos to work and lunch is in the oven. I’ll let you know how it tastes…if I can make myself waddle over to the keyboard.
Oh, and we have rabbits for sale while they last.
UPDATE: (Later in the day…)
On the seventh day we rested, ate rabbit and it was good.
We initially cooked it on a cookie sheet then, later, broiled it on a broiling pan. That’s the way to go if you want to avoid soggy bacon.
The oldest boy went back for thirds.
