- 1 or 2 rabbits, cut into pieces
- Blackberry sauce, recipe below
PREHEAT oven to 300 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with vegetable spray.
In a saucepan, combine the blackberry sauce ingredients and cook over medium-high; or until it gets bubbly. Simmer for 10 minutes.
Arrange rabbit pieces in the prepared pan and pour the blackberry sauce over all (if there is too much, just keep it for another time).
Bake until tender (2-1/2 to 3 hours). Rabbit is very lean meat and it must be cooked "low and slow."
