About this recipe: Sweet, tender rabbit meat is perfect in casseroles, and makes a great alternative to the usual chicken.
*Choose a dry or medium fruity cider; most supermarkets sell it in small cans and bottles. Dry white wine makes a good alternative if you have some to hand.
*Chicken leg joints may be used instead of rabbit for this dish and three chopped celery sticks as an alternative to celeriac.
*Cook some extra vegetables in the oven at the same time as the casserole; braised finely shredded red or green cabbage flavoured with crushed juniper berries would be a good accompaniment.
