I always parboiled the pieces with garlic, onion, celery and carrot. That's the way the old timers taught me. With a lil salt and pepper, till almost tender. Set stock aside. Allow rabbit to cool, then dip in egg wash, seasoned flour, then fry rabbit pieces as shown, just as you would chicken. Then drain most of the oil, leaving a little bit behind with the cracklin's. Add flour to make a rue. Strain stock from veggies and use as a side with taters or rice. Use the stock to make gravy. Add a pan of hot biscuits and you got dinner!

You're welcome. That's very old Virginia style I was taught. It came from my family from a time when our home was just Western Virginia. After boil/simmer, you can either make stew or fried rabbit. Ditto with squirrel.

Got me a thumper the other night, so I may be trying this recipe this weekend. So, Leonard, how do I make a gravy from the stock?

Dinh, would that be White gravy or Brown gravy?

Here is something with Brown Gravy:  Another Recipe from Mike
I come from a family that doesn't know much about fixing White (Cream) Gravy.  In fact, I don't remember either of my grandmothers or my mother ever preparing Cream Gravy with any kind of wild game.  Red [Tomato] Gravy - yes!

The wife cooks squirrels/cottontail using a pressure cooker, cook until the meat was falling off the bones,
then she used a couple of cans of mushroom soup, and mixed in the meat sections,
this sauce was used/spread over rice/taters, of course season to your choice etc.
Served with garlic or onion bread on the side.

There never seemed to be enough to go around, when friends were over.  LOL

Always turned out finger lickin good, IMHO.

To answer your question, the gravy's color will depend largely on how much you brown the rue, if at all. But usually a pale color, like tan. Brown the rue too much and it can overpower rabbit or squirrel's flavor. Just drain most of the oil, leaving enough with the browned bits to make a rue with equal amount of flour. Brown slightly, then wisk in the strained stock. Reducing the stock is even better before adding to the lightly browned rue.
