This recipe was amazing. I used FuZion Shiraz - Malbec wine, which was cheap but delicious and perfect for game meats. I also didn't have currant jelly but had home-made grape preserves that I used... The rabbit was incredibly tender and the flavour was amazing. This recipe gave the meat great flavour without overpowering it, which was exactly what we were looking for... We wanted a recipe that would compliment the rabbit but not overtake it and since rabbit is a subtle tasting meat, many other recipes would have done exactly that.. Oh, and the gravy? Amazing. I doubled the recipe for the sauce that made the gravy (wine and water, etc., and the flour and water) because I didn't think that the recipe made enough as is and I was right.
I served it with sweet roasted butternut squash and fork mashed new potatoes tossed with butter and herbs. The earthy taste of the squash went really well with the rabbit and the gravy was amazing with the potatoes as well.
Everyone loved this meal (mother and husband) and I will definitely be making it again.
