This roasted rabbit recipe may be my favorite way to prepare a whole rabbit. Making it in the solar oven is even better!
We processed one of your grow outs 2 days ago. I decided instead of putting it in freezer camp, I would marinate it. There is nothing like raising your own small livestock – farm to table. Whether you raise meat rabbits or just looking for a good rabbit recipe, I think this roast rabbit will be just the ticket.
Slow Roasted Rabbit in the All American Sun Oven
I used my All American Sun Oven but you can prepare this in a regular oven. It won’t be nearly as cool…but that’s ok. 😉 When slow roasting in your oven you’ll want to lower the temp to 200 – 225 and roast until the rabbit reaches an internal temp of 160 degrees.
Roasted Rabbit Ingredients
I had a 3 – 3.5 lbs young rabbit to roast and started with a simple, but delicious, marinade.
Roasted Rabbit – Marinade Ingredients
6 tablespoons of olive oil
Juice from 2 lemons
3 – 4 Fresh Rosemary Sprigs (removed from stem)
4 Cloves of Minced Garlic
1 Large (or 2 small) Minced Shallot
Freshly Ground Pepper & Sea Salt to taste…

But, in truth, this is really taking a concept that has been part of our lives until the last few decades and making it work in today’s home. From the meat rabbits of the great depression to the victory gardens of the World Wars; backyard homesteading has been a tried and true way of life.
So maybe you’re ready to take the plunge but you aren’t sure where to start.
5 Steps into Backyard Homesteading
30 Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar – I have been using Apple Cider Vinegar for years. It is truly one of the most amazing liquids I know. Let me share with you the top 30 uses for Apple Cider Vinegar on your backyard homestead.
Let’s be clear before we get started. Not all Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is created equal. If you’re not making your own you want to buy a brand that is unfiltered and includes “the mother” (those stringy things in the liquid). This contains the original healthy properties of the vinegar; avoid the filtered stuff….
