Wild & Tasty

What meat is completely wild, delicious, an enormous pest doing untold damage, yet is cheap as chips to buy?

The answer, of course, is a rabbit, and having grown fat on the summer harvest spoils they are particularly delicious just now. There is a slight squeamishness here about eating cuddly and furry animals, yet these critters devastate our woodlands, and munch through crops. Consider rabbit on the menu as payback.

If you had strongly flavoured almost ferric meat of old, think again. Rabbit is best eaten super fresh and has a flavour not too dissimilar to a well-flavoured chicken. It makes for great pies, stews, but also in layered terrines (where the liver can also be used with chicken livers and then layered with thick slices of meat)

Much like the American Signal crayfish, this is one pest which makes delicious eating.

Just don't mention Peter.
