Leftovers

canstockphoto18200857“Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours after cooking. Use within 3 to 4 days or freeze. Use frozen, cooked rabbit within 4 to 6 months for best quality. Reheat leftovers to 74 °C.” As prescribed by the USDA.

Some interesting facts. Rabbit meat tends to relax when warmed up and if done so with aided cooking liquid it will be just as tender if not more when reheated.  This method is actually used by some chefs to cook and then cool down to be refrigerated and then warmed up again before serving.  This allows all the flavours to expand into the meat again and produce a dish with that extra flavour.

Believe us when we say that your dogs will know by instinct that there’s a rabbit in the bag and will be waiting for their share.  Although we do not think it is wise to feed animals cooked food and especially leftovers just a note on the bone of rabbit meat.  Apart from the rib cage that can be quite thin and pointy the bones don’t splinter like chicken bones and they are similar to those of sheep and cattle.
