The Main Ingredient in this Weekend’s Farmette 1769 Recipe is
Farmer’s Market Humanely Raised Rabbit Meat.

This is not where meat comes from. It has been neatly packaged for your consumption. I was raised with this. At some point I was a vegetarian and I still eat many vegetarian meals right now. But, humans existence today happened because we are omnivores, giving us a major advantage over other mammals. When meat is scarce, we can switch to plant-based food and vice versa. Our two-legged, tall, mostly hairless, sweat gland filled bodies, give us the ability to follow prey until they are more worn down than us. So, having said all that about my omnivorous diet…

Would you rather your meat come from here?

Or here?

The meat used for today’s recipe blog post was procured from the Charlotte Regional Farmer’s Market. The man that I purchased one rabbit’s worth of meat from, raises, butchers, and sells this there on the weekends.

Albeit with protest from a dear friend of mine, that now thinks I am a #savage pet #rabbit eater, here is this weekend’s farmette recipe:

Rabbit_1

Marinate Rabbit Meat in a bowl with the following flavorful ingredients using whatever amount strikes your fancy.

Salt
Pepper
Rosemary
Thyme
Lemon Juice
Olive Oil
Fresh Chopped Garlic

Then, just put it on the grill or roast it in you oven.

It not only looks, but tastes a lot like chicken. Rabbit meat has a gamey flare. It is a bit more difficult to get off the bone than poultry, due to muscle tone. The first time that I ate rabbit meat, was breaded and deep fried. It was great! I would have eaten it more often over the years if it was more readily available. But, now, I have not only found a source for rabbit meat, but one that does not factory raise or slaughter the animal.

Happy Weekend Cooking! :)MMW
