I'm curious. What IS the proper word for meat that we get from a rabbit? Deer is to venison what rabbit is to ????

Rabbit meat is rabbit.

The reason deer meat is 'venison', cow meat is 'beef' and pig meat is 'pork' is that those were meats eaten by the higher echelons of society in the early middle ages. The higher echelons of society in early medieval England were Norman (i.e French) and they imported their words for those meats into our language. The meats eaten by the lower orders (the native english) retained their original English names. i.e chicken and rabbit.
Turkey was introduced later and was not of the anglo-french period.

Awwww.... but in my mind I am photoshopping some jackalope antlers on the rabbit.

That explains where Jackalope come from!

Interestingly - we call turkey, turkey because it came from Turk traders.
spudcon Friday Jul 4 09:45 AM
I don't care what they call `em, just stuff `em in a blender and cook `em.

I stand corrected. Thank you Bruce.

And I always thought turkeys were native to North America. What were they doing in Turkey and India? Next are you going to tell us that apple pie is really from Mozambique?

Most of the early American pioneers had limited education, and couldn't spell Mozambique, so they changed it to apple.

I'll bet they're different recipes, though.

Well, you're right.

There was a TV competition last year for The Great British Menu - each dish that won was served at the British Ambassador's Dinner in France.
Imigo Jones Saturday Jul 5 11:13 AM
So, what a great gesture by you Brits
to name this dish after the new French president.
