Baked Rabbit on a bed of Dates and Onion..

Looking for a interesting way to use up a nice big old rabbit leg with thigh attached, this is a lovely way to do so, serve with a side of mashed, or green salad or mixed fresh veggies..

This is as easy as it gets, take a baking dish just as big as needed to fit your rabbit legs, put a layer of dried dates down, lay your thawed or fresh but aged rabbit legs over top of them, peel and slice big thick onion and layer it one top, add enough water to cover the dates, salt and pepper the dish, cover and bake till the meat is well done, take out and mash the dates/onion together, leaving the liquid in the baking dish, or about half of it anyway.. serve as the bed, and then put your rabbit leg on top, drizzle with the liquid on top and serve with your choosen side dish..

Not raising your own rabbits, just a touch to costly for you given the size of your family? No worries, I got you covered, how to take two legs and feed alot more folks coming up next!

    This is awesome, thank you. The resulting sauce looks absolutely amazing. Or should we get all chief like and call it “Jus”. Just kidding! I can’t wait to see what else you post up, This is just what I have been looking for, good down to earth, honest farm style cooking. The stuff that comes from a true country girls heart.

    I have a question please if I may! How long do you age your rabbits for? We used to age rabbits for 3 days but I am wondering if we were actually aging them for long enough so I would appreciate your advice on this please. We have been doing some experimenting on aging beef as we generally age beef for 21 days but we just tested some that we have been aging for 6 months and it was melt in your mouth tender. I should say here that this extended aging was done under a strictly temperature controlled environment.
