Wild rabbit in cider

11

RECIPES OF NAGALAND
INGREDIENTS: One rabbit jointed into hind legs, saddle and fore legs 250 ml dry cider 100 ml double cream Four sticks of celery Two carrots Two cloves of garlic peeled One bay leaf A sprig of thyme Salt and freshly-ground black pepper A little vegetable oil A knob of butter Plain flour for dusting A handful of chopped parsley
METHOD

Pre-heat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4. Place a heavy, deep-sided pan on the heat. Dust the rabbit pieces in flour and shake off any excess. Pour a couple of tablespoons of oil into the pan and add the rabbit, turning it to colour on all sides. Then add the butter, pour in the cider, bring to the boil and simmer for a minute or two.

Add the thyme and bay leaf, cover the pan with a lid or tin foil and put in the oven for around two hours or until the rabbit is cooked and tender. Check on it once or twice and if the cider appears to have reduced too much during cooking, simply top up with a little water. When cooked, remove the rabbit from the pan and pass the remaining stock through a sieve. Cut the celery and carrot into cubes and roughly chop the garlic.

RECIPES OF NAGALAND
Add them to the stock along with the double cream, bring to the boil, turn the heat down and gently reduce until a sauce has formed that coats the back of a spoon and the vegetables are tender. To serve, place the rabbit meat back into the sauce to reheat, season with salt and pepper and finish with the chopped parsley. Super served with mashed potatoes.

Nough smoked salmon for four people One 400g tin of cooked butterbeans One clove garlic, peeled Juice and zest of half a lemon One teaspoon of sesame seeds Extra virgin rapeseed or olive oil A handful of salad leaves Sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper Method: Drain the butterbeans and place them in a food processor or blender along with the garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and sesame seeds.

13

RECIPES OF NAGALAND
Set the blender going at full speed and add the oil in a slow dribble until you have a smooth, peanut butter-like consistency. However how much oil you add is up to you and how loose youd prefer the humous. Taste, add salt and pepper and process again to incorporate. To make it a little different, you could add a chopped chilli to the processor or use lime juice and zest instead of lemon. To serve, arrange the smoked salmon on serving plates, pile the humous on top, tear up and scatter the salad leaves around and finish with a grind of black pepper and a little rapeseed oil.

Ingredients: One whole rabbit Two to three packs of lard or goose fat. Four star anise One bulb of garlic peeled One tablespoon of fennel seeds Ten black peppercorns One sprig of thyme Three bay leaves One sprig of rosemary One bunch of curly parsley Salt and pepper
14

RECIPES OF NAGALAND
Method: Pre-heat the oven to 200C, gas mark 6. Place all the ingredients apart from the rabbit, salt and parsley into a deep-sided roasting tin and place in the oven for a few minutes until the fat has melted. Remove from oven and turn the temperature down to 140C, gas mark 1. Place the rabbit into the roasting tin, making sure its fully submerged in the melted fat. Cover with a couple of layers of tin foil and cook in oven for five to six hours.

When removed, allow to cool just enough to handle and carefully take the rabbit from the fat and pick the meat from the bones, placing it in a large bowl before breaking it up with a fork. Then pour of the fat through a sieve and on to the rabbit. Save the excess fat for further potted rabbits or for roasting potatoes. Some rabbit stock will have separated to the bottom of the roasting tin so carefully spoon off the fat and add the remaining stock to the rabbit in the bowl. Taste and season with plenty of salt and pepper. Add the chopped parsley and mix in well. Then simply spoon the rabbit into ramekins (if youre going to eat it immediately) or sterilised storage jars and pour a thin sealing layer of the melted fat or clarified butter over the top. Itll keep in a fridge for several months. Lovely served with toast or a little salad Smoked haddock and egg pie with a cheesy topping

FISH pie is always a favourite on our menu even to those who profess not to like fish. When choosing the haddock, most fishmongers will have two sorts: one that's slightly grey in comparison to fresh haddock as a result of the smoking and another that, as a result of the addition of colouring, looks like it's been exposed to nuclear isotopes. I'd always suggest the former.
15

RECIPES OF NAGALAND
INGREDIENTS 500g floury potatoes such as Maris Piper or King Edward 300g natural smoked haddock, pin boned and skinned 100g butter 50ml double cream 50g plain flour 100g mature cheddar grated Six free-range eggs Half a pint of milk One level tablespoon wholegrain mustard 150g garden peas A handful of chopped parsley Sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper METHOD Peel the potatoes, cut into even-sized chunks and place in a pan. Cover with cold water, add a little salt and bring to the boil. Simmer until tender, which will be around 15 minutes, before draining them in a colander and returning to the pan. Add 50g of the butter, mash until smooth and then add the cream but don't season just yet. Put to one side. While they're cooking, place the eggs in a pan, cover with cold water, bring to the boil and simmer for seven minutes. Place the pan in the sink and run the eggs under cold water until cool. Crack the shells and remove before coarse-grating the eggs in a bowl. Melt the other 50g of the butter in a saucepan over a gentle heat. Add the flour and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally. Then slowly add the milk, stirring all the time to ensure there're no lumps. If you do get some, use a whisk to mix them in before adding the cheddar. Taste and add pepper and maybe salt if necessary. Remove from the heat. Dice up the fish. Place in a large bowl, add the mashed potato, the grated egg, peas, mustard and parsley and gently mix. Taste and add salt and pepper as necessary. Spoon into a pie dish, pour the cheese sauce over and bake in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Irish stew-style mutton

RECIPES OF NAGALAND
1kg mutton shoulder, scrag end or neck Some mutton bones if available One onion Two sticks of celery Three carrots Half a swede 50g butter Two potatoes Sprig of thyme Two bay leaves A bunch of curly parsley chopped Salt and freshly-ground black pepper Method First, simply place the mutton, along with any bones, into a large pan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for two hours, skimming off any scum or fat that rises to the surface with a ladle or spoon. Meanwhile, wash and peel all the vegetables and cut into 1cm dice. Pick the thyme leaves from the stalks. After two hours simmering, the meat should be tender and starting to break down. Remove it from the liquid and cut into bite- sized chunks. Then pour the stock through a fine sieve into another pan or large bowl. Place the original pan back on a medium heat, melt the butter in it and add the diced vegetables. Allow them to sweat for five or 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure they soften but don't colour. Add the reserved liquid along with the bay and thyme leaves and cook for a further 30 minutes. Taste, season with salt and pepper, add the mutton back to the pot and finish with a generous handful of chopped parsley.
