    I love eating rabbit. It is absolutely delicious but it is important to cook it long and slow due to the lack of fat on it if it is not going to be served tough. I remember as a child my Gran used to make a fabulous rabbit stew and her secret was to put a little bit of mutton in with the rabbit. Mutton is the opposite of rabbit, being incredibly fatty, and it really helped to tenderise the rabbit as well as give it a lot of extra flavour.

    Haven't, no. I don't think that I would, either.

    Thought-provoking question, though!

    I did when I was a kid once but no more, oh no way.

    I have had rabbit before. It really did taste just like chicken, except it was tougher to chew.

    I have, but not for a long while just because you don't find it in the stores. 
    I guess if you were looking for an easy to raise and sustainable source of meat that didn't take a lot of acreage, it would be a good choice.

    Yes, and yes. Rabbit's good eats. Gordon Hamilton's grandmother's tip about putting a little fatty meat in the pot with it is a good one. A piece of salt pork, or some bacon, or the trimming off a chuck roast, or whatever you have works.

    Yes, I have eaten it and I would eat it again. I have also eaten guinea pig. It is a delicacy here. But I would not eat it again unless I had to. They are both rodents but the guinea pig looks too much like a rat.

    Yes and I tell ya, fried rabbit is so good! I'd really love to get that recipe for rabbit stew with mutton. It sounds really tasty.

    Yes I have eaten rabbit, twice. I imagined it to be delicious and special but I must say it was a big disappointment. In my opinion, it wasn't much different than chicken, both in flavor and texture.

    I have eaten rabbit, but I was not crazy about it. It wasn't bad though.

    Rabbit was my grandmother's special for Sunday dinner. She raised rabbits to eat as well as to sell. She would brown the pieces and then simmer them for about 2 hours with water. I remember it being good eating.

    There are many countries where people eat many different animals that are different from what is typically found in the United States.   In those countries it is not considered unusual to eat rabbit, because there rabbit are raised and sold as food in supermarkets.

    Trinidad, Cameroon and Kenya are some examples.   Other countries in South America and China also eat rabbit.

    I ate rabbit when I lived in Italy...but I did not know it was rabbit. It was in the meat section of the grocery, rolled up with onion and celery, then skewered for grilling or roasting. I thought that it was chicken...

    Then a co worker asked me how I liked the rabbit. It was all over at that point and I never ate it again...

    Definitely not as I have a rabbit for a pet. He is so adorable and is best friends with my dog. They play fight together, it's amazing to watch. Also had many rabbits as a child so view them as pets and most definitely NOT food.

    To each his own as they say.

    Yes, just one time "Satay", grilled meat which make by rabbit(usually pork, chicken, mutton and beef), I do not like it. I prefer Chicken satay or pork satay. I don't like the taste although all my friends said the taste is delicious but for me NO.........................
