Rabbit Hind Leg Quarters
Six 10-Leg Packs (60 Legs, Approx. 24lbs Total)
Rabbit meat is tender, lean, and juicy, with a flavor somewhat similar to chicken, but richer. Rabbit hind legs are the meatiest part of the animal and have a more robust flavor. They are best prepared through slow-cooking techniques like braising, stewing or slow-roasting.
Each leg quarter includes both the leg and the attached thigh.
Air chilling (as opposed to the cheaper and more common industrial water chilling) rabbits is a more environmentally sound process that generates less waste and further improves the flavor and texture of the meat (water chilled rabbits can absorb water during the chilling process).
These rabbits are raised by Grupo Hermi, a company that has been raising top quality rabbits in Spain for over 40 years. They control all aspects of production from breeding for superior genetics to innovative farming, processing & packaging. European chefs have very high standards when it comes to rabbit, and Grupo Hermi delivers.
Store rabbit legs in your freezer until you’re ready to use them, then thaw as many packs as you need.
RECIPES & TIPS
Rabbit legs are best cooked slowly at low temperatures. They’re delicious braised, stewed or slow-roasted. The meat can also be removed from the bones and ground for use in sausages, meatballs, meat sauces, etc.
