    recipe title: Lagos/Kounelli Fournou (Baked Hare or Rabbit)
    category: Meat
    keywords: Meats, Greek
    servings: 4
          1    Rabbit or hare
               -- cleaned and skinned
          2    Celery stalks, with leaves,
               -- chopped
          2 md Onions; chopped
          1    Carrot; sliced
        1/2 c  Chopped fresh parsley
          1    Bay leaf; crumbled
          2    Sprigs fresh rosemary
          6    Peppercorns; bruised
          2 c  Dry red wine
        1/2 c  Vinegar
        1/4 c  Butter or margarine
               Freshly ground pepper
          4    Fresh tomatoes; chopped -OR-
          8 oz -Tomato sauce
          3    Allspice berries
    After washing the rabbit or hare thoroughly and cutting into serving pieces, place in a large glass or earthenware bowl. Make a marinade by combining the celery, onions, carrots, herbs, peppercorns, wine, and vinegar and pouring over the meat. Cover and refrigerate for a day or two, turning the pieces over occasionally. On serving day, drain, reserving the marinade, and wipe dry. Transfer the marinade to a casserole and simmer for 15 minutes. While the marinade is cooking, heat the butter in a large frying pan, and when very hot sear the meat over high heat until it is reddened in color without browning. Remove from the heat, and with a spatula lift the rabbit or hare pieces into the simmering marinade, then pour in the remaining butter. Taste for seasoning, then add the salt and pepper, tomatoes, and allspice. Weight the meat with a small plate to keep it under the sauce, then bake it in a very slow oven (225 F) for 2-1/2 hours, or until the meat is tender and the sauce thickened.
