Garlic Scape Vinegar

Ingredients:
1-2 whole garlic scapes, about 12" in length
1 cup light flavored vinegar, such as white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
Glass container
non-metal cap or cover

Note: I like the ratio of 1-2 scapes per cup of vinegar, but you can certainly add more to make the flavor more concentrated. And absolutely double or triple the recipe based on the size of container you are using. Triple the recipe, for example, if using a wine bottle.

Rabbit looks similar to chicken thighs, but the flavor is richer and gamier and the texture is a little more stringy. Still, skinless bone-in chicken thighs make a good substitute for the rabbit in this recipe.
 
Serves 3-4 people.
  • 1 rabbit (2-2.5 lb) or equivalent weight skinless bone-in chicken thighs
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 5 sprigs thyme, woody stems removed, minced finely
