  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease a large 900g loaf tin.
  2. In a saucepan over a medium heat, combine the brown sugar, marmalade, ketchup and mustard and stir until well mixed together. Remove from the heat.

If you can't get hold of rabbit then chicken will do. I like this sliced thick with thick wedges of Cheddar cheese, pickled onions, pickled beetroot and farmhouse chutney.
