Rabbit saddles are the main body of the rabbit, minus the legs and head. Saddle meat is particularly tender, with a mild and easily adaptable flavor somewhat similar to chicken, but richer. Like most game meats, it is low in fat, calories and cholesterol.
Bone-in saddles offer more shape and structure than boneless rabbit saddles, and are commonly roasted whole in Europe.
Air chilling rabbits, as opposed to the cheaper and more common industrial water chilling, is a more environmentally sound process that generates less waste. It further improves the flavor and texture of the meat because air-chilled rabbits don’t 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.
