Wild Rabbit Egg Drop Soup

HarvestingNature | Mar 4, 201508:02 AM

Egg drop soup is a classic hearty, warm you up soup. I have always enjoyed this soup but had never attempted to make it on my own until recently. I was extremely surprised how easy the eggs are added to the soup. One note, make sure you stir the cornstarch into cool water. If you add it into hot water or directly to the soup then it will clump up.

The addition of the rabbit allows you to use the remainder of the rabbit after you remove the quarters and loins. You will also have enough rabbit stock remaining to use it in other dishes. I suggest placing the additional stock in mason jars and freezing. I like cooking rice and pasta with the stock instead of plain water.

Wild Rabbit Stock


1 Rabbit, skinned, cleaned, with the quarters and loins removed

½ onion

5 cloves garlic

1 carrot cut into discs

1 tablespoon olive oil

4 quarts cold water

1 cup of white wine

2 bay leaves

1/2 tsp celery salt

1 tsp thyme

½ tsp black pepper corns


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
Rub the rabbit carcass, onion, garlic, and carrots
Add the rabbit to a roasting pan and roast for 30 mintues
Remove, add the carrots, onion, and garlic, and return to the oven to roast for 20 more minutes
Remove from oven
Place 3 cold quarts water, rabbit, onion, garlic, carrots, bay leaves, celery salt, white wine, thyme, and black pepper corns
Bring to a boil and reduce liquid by half uncovered
Add 1 qt of water, return to a boil, and simmer for 20 minutes
Skim the floating oil and floating matter off of the top
Strain the liquid and set aside the rabbit carcass to cool
Set aside 6 cups of water and store the rest for later
Once the rabbit is cooled, remove and meat from the bones and set aside.
