    Rabbit. With a sting!!

    Ingredients.
    1 rabbit, jointed.
    Stinging nettle tips.
    Wild mint. *
    Wild thyme. *
    Mushrooms.
    Smoked bacon.
    Salt and pepper.

    *You can use any herbs you like if these cannot be found.

    Method.
    Wearing a glove, harvest the tips of the nettles. Take the top inch, including the stalk, fill a carrier bag to about quarter full. Wash them thoroughly and blanch them in boiling water for a few minutes to remove the sting. If you are using wild herbs, wash them and remove the leaves from the stalks.
    Now chop the mushrooms.
    Take a sheet of tin foil and make a bed of nettles and herbs then season, now lay on some rabbit, then some mushrooms, nettles, herbs and mushrooms, seasoning as you go. You should end up with 2-3 layers, finishing with a layer of nettles.
    Wrap loosely to make a parcel and put in the oven at 180C for 35-40 minutes. After 25 minutes, open the foil, baste and leave the foil open so the meat can brown.
    John.
