oven ready rabbits?

is there anyone on here who shoots rabbits in Cambridgeshire and sells them oven ready?
gil

Wonder whether a good butcher would be your best bet for oven ready ?

Amazingly I saw wild rabbit in sainsbury's for 3.99!
gil

What would be truly amazing is if it were reasonably priced. 3.99 is a bit expensive to my mind. 3 in the butchers here.

as yet i haven't ventured to any of the butchers around here - it's something i've been planning to do once i get another freezer in the garage, so i can do a worthwhile trip and stock up on lots of things Smile but must do it soon, as really don't like lining tescos pockets - even more so after the channel 4 shows this week!!

I get a few bunged my way, but they're covered in fur and full of innards. Not a lot recently mind you, I'll have to go and tap on some shoulders Laughing

Whereabouts in Cambs are you? Theres a butchers on Burleigh street where you can get a prepped bunny for three quid or so.

Edit: Oh, St. Ives, I see... I think its the x4 or x5 bus to Cambridge (for the butchers on Burleigh Street), and get to the market too while you're here. And the Cambridge Cheese Company. And the 'farm' shop on Lensfield Road.

Try your fishmonger as well. As odd as it sounds, they often sell game.

True actually, although if shopping in Cambridge theres only the fishmongers on the market that has bunnies, and I think he charges more than the butchers up on Burleigh Street. Dunno about St. Ives though.

Is that one one in the alleyway near Trinity, the place that's been done up? I bought the best pork pie of my entire life there about a year and a half ago.

Yep, thats the one. Run by Wildfoodie and her husband, who are quite splendid.

Although we're quite spoiled for cheese here now. Two good stalls on the market on different days of the week, the farm shop on Lensfield Road sells cheese from Lincolnshire and also from Wibbly Wobbly Farm in Hitchin (and that stuff is superb), and thats before you even get to the Italian/continental Delis. But I wouldn't miss out on the Cambridge Cheese Company if I was just visiting Cambridge, too good not to visit sometimes.

Oi! You lot! Go to Cambridge, go to the cheese shop and buy one of their big pork pies. And some of that grainy mustard in the big pretend-stone jars. Eat the first with a smear of the second.

Do it soon.

Cambridge is a bit out of the way for us. However, they are online.

Oh, yes, so they are. They weren't for a long time, but it seems that now you can find them here:

http://cambridgecheese.googlepages.com/

Even better, I see they're using 'Outspoken Delivery' to cycle-courier cheese to Cambridge addresses. Good eggs are Outspoken, I often see their courier cyclists on the roads, and they're most decent and courteous riders. Gosh... I have to send someone a cycle courier delivery of cheese for their birthday, but who??
