Title: Paint Lick Country Fried Rabbit and Gravy
Categories: Regional Game
Yield: 1 Servings

2 Young rabbits
2 Egg yolks, slightly beaten
1/4cYellow cornmeal
  Salt to taste

Wash rabbit and thoroughly disjoint. Combine yolks and buttermilk, gradually add 3/4 cup of the flour, cornmeal, and salt. Beat until smooth. Heat lard in a frying pan to 360 degrees.

Dip rabbit in batter and fry in lard, 7 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to 275 degrees and cook, turning frequently, until rabbit is tender, about 30 more minutes. Remove rabbit and drain on brown paper. Pour off all but 2 teaspoons of lard in pan. Over medium heat slowly stir remaining 1/4 cup of flour into lard, scraping up pieces of crust from bottom of pan. When smooth, gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, until gravy is smooth and thickened, about 3 minutes. Add a little more milk if gravy seems too thick. Remove from heat, add pepper, then salt to taste. Pour into a pitcher and serve with rabbit.

Serves 6-8
