1 dressed rabbit (6 lbs.) de-boned and cut up
I want to see a 6 lb. cottontail. :o:D:PHere are a few of ways I've cooked rabbit in the past and have enjoyed. Other meats can be substituted.FRIED RABBIT1 c. flour1 tsp. saltPepper to taste4 tbsp. cooking fat1 onion, dicedJuice of lemon (approx. 1/4 c.)Cut rabbit into serving pieces. Roll in mixture of flour, salt and pepper. Melt cooking fat and brown rabbit pieces. Add onion and lemon juice. Cover and cook until tender. After browning meat, I put in a crockpot on low for about 3 hours.SQUIRREL OR RABBIT ROASTClean meat well, making sure that all hair is removed. Cut into pieces. Roll in flour and brown in skillet (just enough oil to keep from sticking). Just brown, it is not necessary that meat is done. When browned, add water to cover. Put quartered potatoes, chopped carrots, quartered onion and salt and pepper to taste in pot. Put a lid on and cook on low-medium until done. This can also be cooked in crock pot. May add cornstarch or flour to thicken gravy.RABBIT AND RAISINS IN CROCKPOT1 rabbit, cut into pieces2 tbsp. Crisco1/2 tsp. salt1/4 tsp. pepper1 lg. onion, sliced1 tbsp. flour1 c. apple cider1/4 c. raisinsWash rabbit. Dry pieces thoroughly with paper towel; season with salt and pepper. Fry onion until lightly browned. Put into crock pot. Fry rabbit pieces on all sides and add to crock pot. Keep 1 tablespoon of fat from the frying pan. Add to this 1 tablespoon flour and stir for a minute. Add apple cider and raisins and bring to a boil. Continue stirring for 1 minute. Pour mixture over rabbit and onions in crock pot; cover and cook 6 to 8 hours on low heat.LOUISIANA CREOLE RABBITIngredients(4 servings)Cleaned rabbit(3lb) 1 ts Salt 1 ts Black pepper 1/2 ts Cayenne pepper 1/4 c Onion,chopped 3 Garlic cloves,minced 2 tb White vinegar 1 ts Browning sauce 1 can Mushrooms,drained(8oz) 1 tb Butter or margarine,melted 1 tb Parsley,minced 2 tb Green bell pepper,minced 2 tb Green onions,chopped 2/3 c White wine,dry Instructions1.

I thought the same thing when I saw it and wondered if it wasnt for a total of 6 lbs??
Domestic rabbits can easily exceed 6 lbs. in weight so I'm sure that's what they were referring to.
