Have You Ever Tried Rabbit?

Have You Ever Eaten Rabbit?

I have to admit, reading Kim Severson's piece in this week's New York Times about rabbit made me the slightest bit nauseous. It may sound strange, but I'm not sure I've ever eaten rabbit — and, despite the fact that my mantra is to try everything at least once, I'm not dying to try it. What about you?

Anon 67: There was a restaurant in Bucks County PA that served Ostrich. The place that served Peacock was in Calif. but I can't remember where (Napa Valley I think?). The ostrich was really quite good. Peacock less so but still nice. It could have been the way it was prepared. Both were a little gamey taste, ostrich is very lean. The ostrich was memorable in part because of the venue. It was an outdoor seating under trees surrounded by plantings, and I had two lovely partners to dine with. Peacock was also lean, but they stirfried it in a wok served with wild rice and veg. Very nice.

Oh, and forgot about duck and quail (the bird, not the ex-VP). I'm' not too sure I could do squirrel. I mean, shave the tail and what do you have? Just sayin'...

Oh, heck yeah! And would have it again in a NY minute. My bro was a hunter - sort of. He went out for rabbit and pheasant. God awful to clean, but yum! I also hunted geese. Scared the crap out of a bunch but they escaped. Have also had Ostrich, Elk, Buffalo, and Peacock. All very tasty.

I've had rabbit. It was ok. I'm a hunter though and didn't buy it at the market. I havn't bought meat at the for years. Someone mentioned ducks. I think ducks taste a lot better.

Hubby loves it, I just haven't had the opportunity. And when it arises, I will indulge! The cute factor is just silly to me. I love cows, have lots of pics of them, look at them daily grazing on the hills as I wash dishes and still think a filet mignon is the best food on the planet. Well all food is good food to me. Eat, drink and be merry - every day of the year!

@ DCStar - it would be hard to make a rabbit greasy; it is a very lean meat that you have to take care not to dry out.

Punishment to who? The kids or the rabbit? That was just cruel. Reminds me of the Mom who made her son kill his hamster with a hammer because he was doing poorly in school. I hate hearing animal abuse stories :( Sounds like their Dad is sick in the head.

Nope, I had them as pets. Altho I never had a pig or a cow, but I can't eat them either. My ex's dad fed his sisters their pet bunny when they were kids as punishment for not taking care of it. They laughed about it years later, joking that "Nobody noticed the chicken had 4 legs!" I couldn't believe they laughed, if my dad fed me my pets I'd literally slit his throat. Of course their dad also beat their hamsters to death and shot their dog, so I guess they were just used to it. @CaterpillarGirl - Babies and toddlers are useless, they just eat and poop and hop around, so that's not exactly a good criteria for consumption :P

My mom is French Canadian and served us rabbit stew when I was a kid. Of course, she didn't tell us until after dinner. Frog legs on the other hand, were something she couldn't hide.

Yes, I had rabbit more times than I can count during my childhood, always breaded and fried. We raised hunting beagles, and the extended family all hunted rabbits and quail. I went along on several trips, helping with handling the dogs and field dressing. I've never been squeamish about that sort of thing, but my husband refuses to try rabbit since he grew up with pet bunnies.
