  13. 13. 1. Mix minced rabbit with seasonings well. Chill in fridge for about 15 to 20 minutes. Combine rabbit with cabbage, spring onion and sesame oil and stir fry. Set aside. 2. Use a measure cup or a bowl, pour in warm milk. Add ½ teaspoon of honey/sugar and yeast. Rest for about 5 to 10, until bubbles arise. 3. Combine flour, 1½ teaspoon of honey/sugar, water, and oil and yeast mixture, knead into smooth dough. 4. Place the dough in a bowl, covered with a cling film. Let rest for 15 to 20 minutes. 5. Punch down dough, and spread out on a floured board. Sprinkle baking powder evenly on surface, and knead for 5 minutes. Divide dough into 2 parts, and place the piece you are not working with in a covered bowl. Divide each half into 12 parts. Shape each part into a ball with smooth surface up. Put each ball on a wax paper square. Let stand covered until double, about 30 minutes. 6. Transfer the dough onto a clean surface. Cut into 10 equal portions. Shape each in round balls, and then roll into a disc with a rolling pin, with edges thinner than the middle. Wrap a spoonful filling inside, pinch seam tightly. Place on a piece of baking paper. Repeat this step with the rest of the dough. Transfer to a steamer/wok, covered, let rest for about 15 to 20 minutes. 7. Add cold water into steamer/wok. Bring water to a boil in wok, and reduce heat to medium, ; the water should still be boiling. Place steam-plate on a small wire rack in the middle of the wok. Transfer as many buns on wax paper as will comfortably fit onto steam-plate leaving 1 to 2 inches between the buns. At least 2 inches space should be left between steam-plate and the wok. Cover wok with lid. Steam buns over boiling water for 15 minutes. Steam buns over medium-high heat. When steam is vigorously releasing, continue to steam for 12 minutes. Turn off the heat, let rest for 10 to 15 minutes. 8. REMOVE LID BEFORE you turn off heat, or else water will drip back onto bun surface and produce yellowish "blisters" on bun surfaces. Continue steaming batches of buns until all are cooked. 9. Serve hot.

Store in individual containers and freeze. Use in soups and sauces instead of chicken stock. Mousseline forcemeat Although individual recipes will differ, the formula shown below for mousseline forcemeat works as an excellent starting point. The amount of cream indicated will produce a good texture for terrines and other forcemeat items that will be sliced. If the mousseline will be used to prepare a timbale or other similar applications, the quantity of cream can be increased by nearly double the amount indicated below:
  20. 20. Meat or fish—1 lb / 454 g Salt—1 tsp / 3 g Egg (or egg white)—1 large Cream—8 fl oz / 240 mL When preparing mousseline forcemeat, you may simply dice the main ingredients and proceed to grind them in the food processor, or you may wish to grind the main ingredient through a coarse or medium plate before processing it with an egg white. When using shellfish, it is important to keep in mind that some types of shellfish, such as lobster and wet pack sea scallops, retain more moisture than others and therefore require less cream than the standard ratio indicates. Process the meat and salt just long enough to develop a paste with an even texture. Add the egg white, followed by the cream. In order to blend the mousseline properly, it is important to scrape down the bowl. Continue processing only until the forcemeat is smooth and homogenous, generally around thirty seconds. Optional: For a very light mousseline, you may prefer to work the cream in by hand. This is more time-consuming and exacting than using a food processor, but the results are worth the extra effort. Both the base mixture and the cream must be very cold in order to add the cream in higher proportions than those suggested in the basic formula above. Work over an ice bath for the best results. Fine forcemeats may be passed through a drum sieve (tamis) to be sure that a very delicate texture is achieved. Be sure that the forcemeat is very cold as you work, and work in small batches to prevent the forcemeat from heating up as you work. Mousseline forcemeats are often featured as appetizers, fillings, or stuffings, or to coat or wrap poached fish or poultry suprêmes. Another interesting way to use this forcemeat is to layer mousselines with different colors to create a special effect in a terrine. Mousseline of Rabbit, Fish or Chicken INGREDIENTS  1 lb Rabbit, smoked or fresh fish or chicken breast fillets— boned and skinned  3 each shallots—chopped
  21. 21.     Garlic glove 1/2 tsp salt and white pepper 3 each whites egg 2 cups cream heavy 1. Ingredients should be kept cold at all times. Pick out any tiny bits of skin or bone and rough chop. 2. Running a Cuisinart at medium speed, purée the shallots. 3. Add the rabbit and pulse-blend it until well chopped. Scrape the bowl at least twice to get an even smooth mixture. 4. Add the salt and pepper, egg whites, and with the motor running, add 1/2 the heavy cream (1 cup) slowly. 5. Scrape down. Add the second half of the cream (1 cup) in a steady stream. 6. Scrape down. At this point the mixture should be perfectly smooth and stiff, and hold its shape well if bagged. 7. Cover it with saran, set it over a bowl of ice in refrigerator for an hour to chill well. It is then ready to use. 8. You may add diced fish, shellfish, mushroom, etc. to the mix if it is to be used in a terrine. A 1 lb (raw fish) batch will need an 8 cup ring, Butter it well, and spoon in the mousse. It can be layered with other ingredients, such as poached asparagus. Fill the mold 3/4 and cover the top with buttered brown paper. Set it in a pan of boiling water, at least halfway up the mold. Bake 375 F 25 min till a knife comes out clean. Let set 5-10 min and unmold on the serving plate. 9. Sauce and serve ASAP, as this mousse is light and delicate. 10. You may use it directly as fillings/stuffings or quenelles. 11. This recipe works equally well with fish or breast of chicken or other white meats for filling and stuffing into ballotine, roulade, relleno etc. RABBIT SOUP INGREDIENTS      Put 1 – 1 ½ cups beans (several types if you have them) to soak the night before. For broth: Rib sections of 3 rabbits Coarse parts of celery, carrots, broccoli etc. Onions 2-3

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS Chop the vegetables and cut the bones into smaller sizes Fry the bones until brown, then add the vegetables and sweats until translucent. Add water and apple juice with the spices then simmer or put it in a slow cooker until the meat is tender. Using tongs remove the rib cages from the pot, cool until they can be handled and then take the meat from bones and refrigerate. Replace bones in slow cooker and cook for another couple of hours. Strain soup and discard solids. Return the broth to the slow cooker. Drain and add beans. Chop and add: 4 onions, four carrots, a small turnip (white turnip, not rutabaga), a couple of parsnips, a few mushrooms, and 2 potatoes. Add some fresh herbs like thyme or marjoram if you have them, ground black pepper, a touch of ground cloves, salt, 1 spoonful white sugar to blend the flavours, and about 3-4 oz. sherry (optional). Cook until everything is tender, add the reserved rabbit meat, taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Serve with herb tea biscuits or muffins.
