Hi, we are going to Wanaka in a couple of months time. Just wondering if anyone knows of a farmer in the area who might be keen to have his rabbit population reduced.
Hello Shannon, perhaps you were thinking of Katherine's blog on breeding rabbits for meat?
wasn't there a group for breeding rabbits to eat? What happened to that?
Hi all :
We used to eat a lot of rabbit, when we were shooting possums, and live capturing joeys, for export. Farmers were happy to have their vermin culled. When rabbits were plentiful, I would run my Victorinox Rabbiter knife edge up, down the spine, and back legs, peel back the hide, and remove the fillets, and back legs. The rest became dog food.
The fillets are very tasty, when butterflied, pounded to a uniform thickness, chopped walnuts & mushrooms sprinkled on, then rolled, skewered with toothpick, baked in dish with olive oil, until cooked.
Rabbit skin is much weaker than possum, and after tanning sheds a lot.
