Ingredients for 4 people:


Rinse the hare runs, clean, dry with kitchen paper, season with salt. Peel the garlic cloves and chop them finely.

Heat the oil in a cast-iron roaster and brown the hare legs on all sides. Extinguish with the stock and red wine, then add bay leaves, thyme, paradeis pulp, cinnamon, vinegar and the chopped garlic.

Cover and simmer at low temperature for about 1 hour. Meanwhile, peel the small onions, but whole.

Remove the drumsticks from the roasting pan and, using a kitchen knife, peel off the meat, cut into cubes about 3 cm in size and return to the saucepan along with the onions.

Simmer on low heat for another 45 min (with lid), then season strongly with salt and freshly ground pepper. This is a typical Greek dish and cinnamon is a must.

Our tip: Use sweet red wine for a sweet note and rather dry wine for flavorful, spicy dishes.
