Mix salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme with water and pour into crock pot or Dutch oven
Add 2 Aberts Squirrles and 1 Cottontail, cook until meat slips from the bones.
Strip the meat off the bones and return to the pot.
Add cubed potatoes, onion, garlic, carrots and celery.
Cook until potatoes are done.
Smoked rabbit gumbo is the best way to devour a cottontail or swamper, imho.
Can't give out the recipe, because wife is at work; (she is the cook, & I am the destroyer of perfectly good food)
The Bar B Que pit is another way to make a tasty rabbit meal. Even I can experience some sucess there.
But if you haven't tried them smoked, and have acess to a smokehouse, it really adds flavor to 'em.
I have also heard what was previously mentioned- that any way you can cook a chicken is also an excellent choice for the rabbit.
