Hare...

Saw Hare on sale today at Salisbury market...I would assume it would be prepped and cooked the same as Rabbit...and taste similar too...

Any-one on here ever tried it ?

Re: Hare...

growing up  we ate many , as my father was an avid hunter..  Many jackrabbits found their way onto the table,  although my siblings and I didn't realize it for many years. It was just really good chicken to us for a long time til we starting asking why the chicken had four legs and no wings.  wink  wink

Re: Hare...

wine-o, google Jugged Hare.  You could ask Mr Sainsbury how long the hare has been hung for.

Never had it myself but would like to.  I love rabbit, so I'm bound to enjoy hare.

Re: Hare...

Dammit wine-o, I meant Mr Salisbury (market).  Yes, they'll know and if they don't, sack 'em.
My apologies.

Re: Hare...

Hare is a much more 'gamey' taste than rabbit................if you like mutton as opposed to lamb...........pheasant as opposed to chicken..........then in all likelyhood you will enjoy it.

I cook Jugged Hare whenever the local farmers have a shoot (they are always kind enough to give me a brace). It is a lovely meat when hung a while, then cooked in red wine, spices/herbs, garlic & some good meat stock. I do add the blood near the end of cooking but, if you are a bit squeamish, you don't have to.

Re: Hare...

I love hare wine~o  I agree with minerva that it can be much more gamey than rabbit, but that depends on how long it's hung.  My husband hunts, and when he gets one (they've been a bit scarce this season because of the sodding linx) we tend not to hang it too long, normally only about a week.  But I like to marinade it in oil, lemon and thyme, than grill or BBQ it.  Delicious yummy
