wish you were up here :) We are in dire need of somebody to shoot the rabbits.

We're just waiting for hubby's gun license to come through. Had the police interview now and the gun cupboard inspection ( passed with flying colours the nice police man said) Hubby has to do the mountain safety course ( fairly new thing??) and then we're pretty much set - by that time there will probably be 3000 more rabbits eating my seedlings.

Nope, been around for ages. Its not a mountain safety course, but a firearms safety course based around the arms code run by the Mountain Safety Council. Must get 28/30 (or is it 29/3o), including 7/7 relating directly to the 7 basic rules of firearm safety.

It's dead easy to pass tho, if you get any questions wrong, the course teacher will go over your fails with you one-to-one and explain why you were wrong andwhat is right, and give you a new test... repeat until you reach the pass mark.

I got 100% on the first run through :D

When I did mine a guy failed on his nth attempt as well. I was absolutely appalled that someone could continue to fail such a simple test on an important thing like safety around firearms, but maybe there was an issue like dyslexia involved.

Well hubby passed it no bother. girly swap got 30/30.
His gun license came through about a week later. He's not bought his gun yet, but has borrowed an air rifle from a friend. He is a really good shot. He got the first rabbit tonight - clean head shot. Hes got it all skinned and jointed. Now he needs to decide what to make with it!

One bottle of Pams butter chicken, one Bunny rabbit, drop both in the slow cooker and leave it until done... easy and delicious.

Did he blanch it?

grab your june LSB mag :) it's in pics in there :)

rinse the bunny bits in a bowl and tip the water out, then rinse with more water, until the water stays clear, not a tinge of red. then add salt to the water & bunny mixture until none more dissolves. leave overnight and rinse and pat dry in the morning. hen either freeze, fridge, or cook.

easy peasy :)

we use rabbit in place of chicken in all our recipes. Have never blanched it, did not know I should and since I have not so far I am probably too lazy to start now :P

It's a taste thing foufee, by drawing out the blood from the meat the "Gamy" taste that puts many first time eaters of wild rabbit off, is reduced.

If you are used to and like the taste of rabbit in and of itself, then blanching is not strictly necessary, but it does sweeten and milden the taste.

It also improves the colour from the grey brown meat from the cooked blood in the heavily exercised muscles, to a clearer white chicken-y colour.

Blanching roosters would probably also sweeten and lighten the meat if you're serving home roo roast to citified relatives. :D
