For folks that raise or hunt rabbit for meat here is a recipe to add to your collection. Rabbit with chimichurri that you put into jars and keep in the fridge. They will keep for up to six months unopened and should be eaten within two weeks after opening. The rabbit is simmered in a rich vegetable stock till it is tender and falling off the bone.
The chimichurri sauce is a fantastic mixture of chilis,garlic, parsley and a bunch of other herbs and spices. This combi is mixed with the shredded rabbit and then put in jars and used as a spread on toast or crackers.
Hunter Gather Cook shares the recipe and he says the mixture is potted into Kilner jars. Kilner jars are according to Wikipedia ” a rubber-sealed, screw-topped jar used for the storage of food, which was invented by the Kilner family and produced by John Kilner & Co., Yorkshire, England.” He also shows “How to Skin, Gut and Joint a Rabbit (applies to squirrels too!)”
So I think you could just use regular jam jars. This recipe is a nice one for eating rabbit cold and would make a great addition your favorite rabbit recipes.huntergathercook.typepad.com
