  • 1 skinned, cleaned and cut rabbit
  • 1/4 lb salt pork
  • summer savory to taste
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • water
  • 2 teaspoon flour
  • 2 cups diced potatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • water
PREPARATION Dumplings: Combine flour, salt and baking powder. Add water to form a dough; roll to 1/4-inch thick. Cut in 1-inch squares.

In a stew pot, cook the rabbit, onion and salt pork rind for 2 hours over medium heat. Remove and cube the pork rind and return to pot. Add the remaining vegetables and seasoning to taste. Cook for 30 more minutes.

In the last 15 minutes, prepare dumplings and drop into the stew. If it is not thick enough, make a paste with flour and water and add to desired thickness. Let simmer until all the dumplings have come to the surface and are cooked, about 15 minutes. Serve with ployes or hot biscuits.
