N 1 hare, quarters, and chopped loins
G 50 salt
G 20 sugar
G 20 mustard seed
N 4 cloves garlic

  • Combine sugar and salt and use it to season the meat. Wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 135 °C (275 °F). Rinse the hare with cold water and pat dry. Place in Dutch oven with all the spices. Pour in oil until the meat is submerged. Cover with lid and place on the middle rack of the oven for 2-3 h until fork tender but not quite falling off the bone.
  • Allow to cool in the oil (confit is always better when it cools in the fat). You can refrigerate the entire thing for a couple of days or get right to finishing it.
  • Preheat broiler. Strain hare from oil (save the oil to roast vegetables, make croutons, or dip bread) and place on a sheet pan and broil for 2-3’ until crispy, then flip and cook the other side for 2-3’.
  • Serve with crusty bread and roasted vegetables or shred it and add to soups or salads.
