CONEJO EN SALSA DE ALMENDRAS
(RABBIT IN ALMOND SAUCE)

1 Rabbit, cut in pieces
3 TBLS Oil
1 Onion, chopped
5 Cloves Garlic
20 Almonds, Blanched & Skinned
1/4 TSP Cinnamon
1 TBLS Chopped Parsley
10 Peppercorns
2 Cloves
1/2 TSP Saffron
1 TSP Salt
3 TBLS Water
1/4 Liter (1 Cup + 1 TBLS) White Wine
2 Bay Leaves

Rub the pieces of rabbit with salt and pepper and set aside. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions, 4 cloves of garlic and almonds with the rabbit liver, if available, just until toasted. Remove them to mortar or blender and crush with the cinnamon, parsley, raw garlic, peppercorns, cloves, saffron and salt. Dissolve in the water. Meanwhile, in the oil in the pan slowly brown the rabbit pieces. Add the mortar mixture to the rabbit with the white wine and bay leaves. Cover and simmer until rabbit is very tender, 30 minutes to an hour, depending on size of rabbit, adding water or light stock if more liquid is needed. Great over rice.

Serves 4.



Guess noone liked my recipe. :,-(
I woulda commented on it, but I've cooked rabbit so many times, i just didn't think twice about it, attaboy! ;-D

No one can afford saffron. Let alone put it on wild rabbit.

I feel for you Knapp. I have some guns, but since I can't fire in the city, I have a pellet pistol for the damn rabbits. The dogs do a decent job keeping them out, but I take out the brave ones.

This is my rifle.

There are many like it, but this one is MINE.

My rifle is my best friend. It is my life.

I must master it as I must master my life.

My rifle without me is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.

I must fire my rifle true.

I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me.

I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will...

My rifle and myself know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire,

the noise of our bursts, nor the smoke we make.

We know it is the hits that count. We will hit...

My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life.

Thus, I will learn it as a brother.

I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories,
its sights, and its barrel.

I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage.

I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready.

We will become part of each other. We will...

Before God I swear this creed.

My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country.

We are the masters of our enemy.

We are the saviors of my life.

So be it, until there is no enemy, but PEACE.

My wife said the following:

Had you lived in East Texas, she would only have been mad if you didn't buy 2 of those rifles. 1 for you and 1 for her.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

Okay knapp - you just lost all credibility with me. If you have a CAT you should have no rabbit problem, just let that little bugger loose and his/her hunters instincts should kick in and solve the rabbit over-population issue. Unless of course you were silly enough to de-claw said kitty at some point, in which case I say you deserve your rodent problems as recompense for said act of cruelty...

This is the world's whimpiest cat. He's afraid of everything. He has all his claws but they're worthless. He wouldn't get near a rabbit, let alone go outside.

The world's proverbial scaredy-cat. :-[

Cut a haunch off one of those dead bunnies you so cruelly massacred, put it in his feed dish to give him a taste, and see what happens ;-)

My sister lives in Spain where rabbit is very popular and you can easily get it in all the supermarkets. I had it once and it pretty much tasted like chicken & when I make it here I use chicken. I know that usually saffron is very expensive but lately the supermarkets near me have some that's not expensive at all. Saffron is inexpensive in Spain and they use it a lot there.

Pretty tasty recipe though and you can omit the saffron. ;-D
