With the ever growing interest in local ales there is also an interest in craft ciders which can be found in quite a few of our local pubs, see elsewhere for those pubs known to provide real cider and recognised by the "Apple" window sticker. To add to the cider experience during the summer one of our members has provided the following recipe.


  • 1 whole rabbit jointed
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ cup good chicken Stock
  • Potatoes enough to 2 of 4 portions
  • ½ lb brussel sprouts
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 3-4 mushrooms
  • Cider enough to cover


Brown off the rabbit in a large pan with a little olive oil, remove and set aside.
Fry the onion in the oil until soft and golden then add paprika and ground coriander, then pour in a little chicken stock.
Add in the mushrooms, potatoes, brussel sprouts and finally the browned rabbit. Cover with the cider and bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat and cook until all components are tender and the sauce is reduced.
