FRIED FIELD RABBIT before Thanksgiving Day Dinner!

Nancy J. Patrykus


Every Thanksgiving starting in 1948, we would gather at The Curls Family Farm in Indiana.
Grandma Nellie would be cooking turkey with all the trimmings!
No running water in the home, just a cold water pump and a wash bin,also a coal & wood burning stove in the kitchen!
This was the "ANNUAL EVENT" for all the men and boys, over 12 to go rabbit hunting!
About the time grandma would be making the biscuits.....In came the hunters.!!
With there hunting jacket pouches filled with the gutted kill for the day. Papers were spread on the floor and the cutting up and cleaning began. Then dinner
