what to do with the rest of your fur coat

waste not want not

you don’t kill a cow just for the leather or a rabbit for a fur coat … so try this ……

1 rabbit jointed into 8 pieces

2 tbsp olive oil

1 onion finely chopped

1 stick celery finely diced

2 cloves garlic sliced

2 sprigs rosemary chopped

1 bay leaf

1 lemon

1 hand full green olives

250 ml white wine

300-500 ml chicken stock

salt pepper

heat oven to 180c /brown rabbit on med-high in an oven proof casserole pan and then set aside … reduce heat and cook onion and celery untill soft … return rabbit to the pan and stir in the bay leaf / zest and lemon juice / olives / wine and enough stock to cover then season with salt / pepper … bring to a simmer then put lid on and place in oven for 1 1/2 hours … remove from oven and place on the stove without the lid and simmer untill the sauce thickens slightly …

NB : you can replace the rabbit with chinchilla or mink

i hope you enjoy this as much as you do  your fur coat ……..
