A recent article in food and cooking porn magazine Saveur got us thinking about something we hadn’t eaten since being a little kid in Texas: rabbit. Turns out a few chefs have started getting into the small animal because it’s more sustainable to raise than large livestock; it’s lower in fat than chicken, turkey, beef, and pork; and it’s higher in protein. If you visit Lexington Market, you can find a number of poultry vendors selling it. Brookdale Farms rabbit goes for $3.99 per pound, with a whole skinned and cleaned rabbit averaging between 2 and 3 pounds. It’s pretty easy to butcher further once you get home—and the anatomy layout is similar to larger animals, so you’ll know where everything is if you’re familiar with cooking meat at all—and it’s very, very easy to work with. Just find a few recipes that pique your interest online and see what happens. And, no, it doesn’t really taste like chicken unless you prepare it like chicken.
