A traditional Cajun recipe.

1 1/2 cups lard or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
4 cups water
2 cups chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped celery
Louisiana hot sauce to taste or 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped celery
2 cups dry white wine
1 pound andouille or smoked sausage
One rabbit, cut into pieces

In a large pot, heat the lard over medium heat. Add the flour and stir constantly to make a very dark roux, about the color of mahogany wood. Add the onions, celery, and bell peppers and cook, stirring constantly, until the vegetables are tender. Add the remaining ingredients and cook, covered, until rabbit is tender, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Serve over rice.
