It is my humble opinion that we don't eat enough rabbit these days, I'm not sure why, they're inexpensive, it's healthy for you, doesn't have a strong gamey flavour, has less calories than other meats, and you could argue that the Wild rabbit is pretty much organic!! ...we could go on, I urge you to give the humble rabbit a try, you won't be disappointed

2 wild rabbits cut into pieces

3 tbsp of plain flour
