I tried this recipe for the first time when I was 10 years old, my grandfather Andon prepared it for us.  When i first tried it, i liked it so much that I have licked my fingers, it was so delicious. For years after that I had not eaten rabbit until you invited me to try a similar rabbit stew with prunes. The difference was that this time it was not made from wild rabbit and was also very tasty, but the meat was not so tender. Pretty soon I was in the supermarket searching for frozen rabbit. I tried several versions until I found mine. Rabbit meat is very dry so the combination allows the sauce to avoid this.

The first step in making rabbit stew is catching the rabbit.
