       1    Large rabbit cut into pieces
       2 tb Vegetable oil
       1    Bay leaf, crumbled
       1    Garlic clove, chopped
       1    Clove (the spice)
       2 tb Bacon, diced
       2    Small carrots, chopped
            Mushrooms, optional
     1/2 c  Vinegar (a little less if using lots of a sour chipotle
                sauce like Bufalo)
   1 1/2 c  Water or 1 1/4 c. water and 1/4 c. white wine)
       1 c  Sour cream
            Chipotle sauce or puree to taste
 
   Heat vegetable oil in cauce pan.  When hot, add leaf, garlic clove,
   spice clove, bacon, carrots and mushrooms.  Add rabbit and saute
   until browned.
 
   Pour solution of 1/2 cup vinegar, the chipotle sauce, & the water/wine
   over meat.  Cover pan and simmer until tender.  Before removing pan
   from heat, add sour cream and more chipotle puree if desired. Serve
   hot with dumplings or large noodles.
 
  I like this with about a teaspoon of Dijon mustard in the final sauce.
