If you are like me, after a day of busting through briars, brambles and thickets chasing rabbits, you are in dire need of instantly gratifying snack before anything else can take place. This is where the rabbit heart and liver come in handy. Inside of 10 minutes, you can reenergize with a great source of Iron Thiamin, Zinc, Copper and Manganese, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Iron, Phosphorus and Selenium. Yeah… all the things you need to tide you over until you can get a full meal prepared.
Rinse the heart and liver in cold water, add a bit of salt and pepper.
I sautéed the heart in butter and the liver in oil just for the variation. Either source of fat (butter or oil) is fine for both organs.
Wild Game Offal is a very underused portion. In addition to increasing your overall yield, it is also a fun and traditional way to end a day of hunting.
