A New Dish

Baked, stuffed rabbit breast and pieces, with Mandarin Fruit sauce
... in the wood-stove oven, of course.

..... accompanied by our own frozen corn, and baked sweet potatoes w/ brown sugar/cinnamon topping.

Oh, YUMM it was good!! and Hubby gave his approval!
Mandarin Fruit sauce
1 can (11oz) mandarin oranges
3/4c orange juice
1 1/2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp lemon juice
1 T cornstarch (I added a little more)
2 T brown sugar
3/4 tsp ginger
a few marashino cherries, sliced
Drain oranges and reserve liquid. Combine andarin orange liquid with orange juice, soy sauce and lemon juice in saucepan. Mix cornstarch, ginger,and brown sugar and add to the liquid; cook, stirring constantly until thickened. Fold in oranges and cherries. Stuff the rabbit breast cavity with your favorite stuffing and place in roaster pan or dutch oven with other rabbit pieces, Pour sauce over rabbit pieces and bake in oven on med. heat (325-350) for 2 hrs, basting occasionally. Take lid off roaster the last 20 mins. Enjoy!! I am sure this could also be used nicely with skinless chicken breasts.

I've never ate rabbit, but I guess I would try it given the chance.

I sent out your package yesterday, sorry for the delay.

It looks good Sunny, but don't remember ever eating rabbit, some say it tastes a lot like Chicken.The mandarin sauce sure looks good too, I think I would like to try it on my chicken breast, as it has a lot of ingredients I love.Don't know what I would do without my sweet potatoes, tastes good and good for you. My goodness I should have come for dinner. Thanks for sharing.
