My First Attempt at Cooking Rabbit Cacciatore

As a child we didn’t eat rabbit that often. I do, however, remember having it one time and getting a mouthful of buckshot! At least I knew the rabbit was freshly hunted!

It’s cute and quirky and still does its job: Yes, it’s “The Sergeant” which of course is playing on the imagery of […]
