Back in late September I posted about Carmela Soprano's Grilled Meat Skewers and, in the title, I also mentioned Ma's Fenek bit-tewm u bl-Imbid.
I gave the Meat Skewer recipe, but went on to tell a story about my Pop getting a live rabbit while we lived in British Columbia. I wrote about how my Pop prepared the rabbit for dinner. But I didn't give Ma's rabbit stew recipe.
I got a few e mails, but they got lost in my computer.
Here it is.
Late, but still good.
It's an easy recipe and you don't have to hunt down a local bush bunny.
Rabbit is now in stores.
