Remove it from the oven and chop into large pieces. Gently fry the bacon cut into large pieces and the half of the onions well chopped. Add the rabbit and fry it also.

Peel the almonds. Toast them. Chop them. Slice the bread and soak it in white vinegar. Mash this with the almonds, the rest of the onions chopped and the livers (roasted a little beforehand). Beat eggs and add them to the mixture, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens.


When the rabbit is almost done. Strain the broth and add this mixture to the meat. At the end of cooking add the honey or sugar if a sweet and sour flavor is desired. Serve in soup bowls. Sprinkle with ginger shavings and cinnamon. It is truly delicious!
