To maintain the freshness and quality of a whole rabbit, it is recommended to store it in the refrigerator at a temperature of 32°F to 40°F (0°C to 4°C). Place the rabbit in an airtight container or wrap it tightly in plastic wrap to prevent any exposure to air or odors. Properly stored, a whole rabbit can be refrigerated for up to 2-3 days. If you plan to store it for a longer period, you can also freeze the rabbit. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil or place it in a freezer-safe bag or container. Frozen rabbit can maintain its quality for approximately 3-4 months. Remember to thaw frozen rabbit in the refrigerator before cooking for the best results.
This pack contains 1 piece.
Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.


To cook a whole rabbit, here’s cooking instruction:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
2. Rinse the rabbit under cold water and pat it dry with paper towels.
3. Season the rabbit with salt and pepper, both inside and outside.
4. Heat a large oven-safe skillet or roasting pan over medium-high heat on the stovetop. Add a tablespoon of cooking oil or butter.
5. Place the rabbit in the skillet or roasting pan, and sear it on all sides until browned. This helps seal in the juices.
6. If desired, you can add herbs, garlic, or other seasonings to the skillet or pan for extra flavor.
7. Transfer the skillet or roasting pan to the preheated oven.
8. Roast the rabbit for approximately 20 minutes per pound (45 minutes per kilogram) or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C) when measured with a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat.
9. Baste the rabbit occasionally with the pan drippings to keep it moist.
10. Once cooked, remove the rabbit from the oven and let it rest for about 10 minutes before carving.
11. Carve the rabbit into serving pieces and serve hot.

Remember to adjust the cooking time based on the size of the rabbit and use a meat thermometer to ensure it is cooked thoroughly.
