Directions

GETTING READY
1. Combine the white wine, sugar, salt, olive oil, rosemary, cloves, pepper corns and garlic except the rabbit meat, in a 1.25 gallon freezer bag and shake it up well.
2. Then add your rabbit pieces to the bag and gently mix the marinade and rabbit together. Marinate for at least 24hrs to 48hrs. Just before cooking, take the meat out and pat it dry.

MAKING
3. In a dutch oven add the rabbit meat and allow to brown without burning. Depending on size of the Dutch Oven or pot, you may have to brown the rabbit in batches.
4. In a plate covered with paper towel, transfer the browned rabbit pieces.
5. Pour the white wine in the Dutch Oven or large pot to deglaze.
6. Add peppers and onions, and allow to sweat down. Sprinkle salt and black pepper to draw moisture from peppers and onions.
7. Drizzle little more olive oil on top, if you desire.
8. When the veggies have sweated out, pour in 2 cups of chicken stock and cook for 2 minutes.
9. Next add the tomato sauce of choice and mix well.
10. Once the mixture is blended well, add herbs and spices and mix well.
11. Add sugar to taste and sprinkle parsley on top.
12. Increase heat and bring the mixture to a boil and then back to a simmer by reducing heat.
13. Add the rabbit pieces back to the stew mixture one at a time and simmer the dish for 1 1/2 to 2 hours till the meat is tender. Remove from heat and keep aside.
14. In another sauce pan, add 2 cups chicken stock and 2 cups half and half.
15. Place the pot on heat and slowly add the polenta and continue to stir until the stock mixture starts boiling. Continue stirring after reducing the heat to a simmer for another 5 to 7 minutes. Once cooked, the polenta should be smooth and thick with large bubbles popping up to the surface.
16. Remove from heat and add butter, cheese and pepper.

SERVING
17. Serve the tender rabbit meat stew on a bed of polenta. Enjoy!
