    LOL ... Good one Ray...;-)~ Rabbit is one of my favorite dishes. This sauce sounds wonderful. It would be fantastic on grilled rabbit too. Thanks for sharing... Hugs Jim

    This sounds delicious. Used to love rabbit as a kid, but haven't had it in years and years. Now, I wouldn't know where to get it.

    Good dark meat... Will copy the recipe anyway, just in case ;-)

    I just have to say it... typically, I do everything I can to avoid getting a hare in my food.

    I hope you'll forgive me -- it just had to happen; if I don't ever hear from you again, I'll understand.

    It really is a delicious looking sauce!

    Oh - just the rabbit in your sauce - wonderful! There was a place in Seattle - Cafe Juanita that served rabbit and it was absolutely wonderful. This reminds of that recipe. Thanks for the wonderful post!
