  • 1 rabbit, portioned
  • Butter
  • 6 shallots, finely sliced
  • 6 Chantenay carrots, cut into slices
  • 1 eating apple, cut into chunks
  • 1 bottle of dry cider
  • 1 tbsp robust whole grain mustard
  • 2 tbsp double cream
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Plain flour
  • Olive / rapeseed oil
  • Chives, finely chopped
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • First dust the rabbit in flour. Add a knob of butter and a dash of oil to a hot casserole dish before browning the meat in batches, transferring to a plate once ready.
  • Add a little more butter to the pan and let it melt over a low heat. Add the shallots and slowly soften until translucent, then stir in the mustard.
  • Add the carrots, apple and bay leaf to the pan and fry for a few minutes, pop the rabbit back into the casserole and season.
  • Pour in the cider until everything is covered and let it simmer for 5 mins
  • Place in a pre-heated oven at 180c for about an hour checking every 20 mins to ensure it doesn’t dry out. If it is looking dry add a little water and stir.
  • Once the rabbit is cooked and the sauce has reduced, remove from the oven and stir in the double cream and top with the chopped chives
