Robert C. "Uncle Bob" Winans of Lutz, Florida keeps several dozen rabbits (along with laying hens, fishing worms, and a year-round garden) on the acre of land to which he and his wife have retired.

And when it comes time to eat one of his home-raised rabbits, Uncle Bob doesn't rely on any cookbook, nor does he fall back on some time-honored but ordinary cooking method for cooking rabbit. What he does is invent new rabbit recipes as he goes along!

George Fournier of Charlton City, Mass. — on the other hand — prefers to adhere to one favorite rabbit-cooking formula that has never let his family down. "It's a recipe my Canadian wife, Monique, brought to Massachusetts with her as part of her dowry . . . part of the accumulated farm kitchen wisdom that's passed down from generation to generation in a land where tradition is still a part of one's inheritance."

According to her husband, Monique Fournier's Canadian rabbit stew "will stick to your ribs through a whole day's chores, and keep you 'til the dinner bell rings."
