Actually my parents raised rabbits and I ate a lot of them. Funny thing is they
don't seem to taste as good now. I tried to recreate my mother's recipe several
times and never managed to see why I ever liked them!
Funny story about the rabbits.
During WWII my parents went to a dance at the Grange every Saturday night. One night
they invited about six couples home for something to eat. This was about 2 a.m. My Dad
and someone else went out and killed several rabbits (I think, no I am sure they had a
few) and brought them in for my Mom to fry. She cut them up and dredged them in flour and
started frying them. The muscles in the rabbits were still twitching because they were so
fresh. One lady screamed when she saw that and passed out on the kitchen floor. Everyone
else ate a fried rabbit dinner in the middle of the night.
All of us kids were watching from the stairs and we really laughed over that one.
