I am of the opinion that rabbit (or opossum, or squirrel, or racoon, or nutra-rat) is a vital ingredient in a true jambalaya. Chickens are for city folk...

Heather,
Ya know, even though weapons and Idaho go together like chili and cornbread, my folks, while very conservative, don't see it necessary to pack "heat"....that would be such a better story if they did.

2008-05-06T21:28:00.000-07:00

Emiline - It doesn't take bravery to get past losing a loved one, just time.

Rosa - It was pretty tasty, thanks goodness for leftovers!

Nilmandra - Be sure and look in a resale shop or yard sales - that's the cheapest place to find a cast-iron skillet. They last forever!

Doc - I'm glad you found my jambalaya not-too-Yankified. :)

Lina - I'm glad you found me! Cornbread really is the best.

Jonny - Thanks for the podcast link - it's good to hear your and Amy's voices. Nothing wrong with a little self-promotion (why else do we blog?). Sorry about your mom.

Jenn - I love when I remind someone of a friend of theirs. Especially if it's a cool bluesy chick. :D You rock too, woman!

2008-05-06T09:03:00.000-07:00

That corn bread looks great. I have a friend Nikki, who you kind of remind me of - she is a blues singer and spent lots of time in New Orleans - you should hear her when we start talking about jambalaya - she makes a killer one by the way- it is so fun!
Sorry about your mom Heather. I am sure she would have loved your cooking!
You rock! :)

2008-05-06T09:01:00.000-07:00

... and my condolences about your mother's death. I too know the pain of losing my mother to cancer.

2008-05-06T09:00:00.000-07:00

Heather,

not only am I now convinced that my recent ingestion of jiffy cornbread was somewhat more than poor judgment, but I've been encouraged to learn more about the lagomorpha order of mammals. If only I'd thought to be so zoological in my research prior to our podcast on provencal rabbit stew (shameless plug, sorry)! Had I done so, I could have learned about the now-extinct Minorcan Giant Lagomorph - a 50lb rabbit - which would have made quite a jambalaya...!

2008-05-06T08:06:00.000-07:00

I love cornbread. All of your food looks great! I'm glad that I found your blog! I'll be visiting often :)

2008-05-06T08:02:00.000-07:00

Interesting variation on the jambalaya. We fix jambalaya at least every two or three weeks, but have never tried rabbit. Will keep it in mind (but I will have a difficult time getting rid of the chicken).

On cornbread, I didn't know Yankees ate cornbread. But like you, I fix mine in my "egg skillet" . . . my inherited 10-inch cast iron skillet with a 50-year old seasoning patina.

Also like you, we ALWAYS keep a tub of bacon fat in the fridge. I like to thoroughly render a pound or two of bacon, save the grease (fat) and crumble the remainder for topping a salad, potato or just about anything else.

Oh, and we ALWAYS put minced jalapeno in our cornbread.

Great post.

Love the cornbread! It looks fantastic, and that skillet is something on my to-buy list.

Oh yummy! That meal looks terribly good!

Cheers,

Rosa

2008-05-05T20:59:00.000-07:00

I'm so sorry about your mom. I feel really sad. 11 days is too quick- I don't know what I would have done. You're a brave gal.

Thanks for clearing up some of this cajun/creole business.
This jambalaya looks delicious. Especially with lots of hot sauce.

2008-05-05T19:19:00.000-07:00

Jube - Sorry! I totally didn't mean to leave you off the comment thingy. Dead moms are the pits, aren't they? :\ I didn't catch the bunneh myself, I have a great game and exotic meats purveyor here in Portland called Nicky USA (the only thing I hunt is mushrooms). What's your source?

Leigh - Aw, thanks. I always wonder what the non-Americans think of all the weird regional food we have, but some of it is pretty great. :)

Michelle - Sorry about your dad. Stupid cancer. If you and I ever get in the same room, we should have a bacon grease wrasslin' contest. Syd would fucking love that.

Brittany - Sounds like you have a pretty good system over there. If my brother weren't so busy ignoring his kids and making shitty rap beats, he'd prolly do the same for me.

2008-05-05T18:59:00.000-07:00

I too am a random throw shit in a pot jambalaya maker, but you have changed my ways. My brother often cooks with rabbit, so I will definitely be passing this recipe on for him to do the dirty work, and me to eat until my pants rips...like always.

2008-05-05T16:14:00.000-07:00

I forgot to ask: did you hunt and/or gather that there lagomorph? It's a great twist on the tradition.

I ask because there's a source coming on line very soon right down the road...

2008-05-05T15:29:00.000-07:00

i totally have a crock of bacon fat in the fridge. saving my bacon fat is perhaps the best culinary decision i've ever made.

colon cancer killed my dad 3 years ago. it can suck my proverbial dick.

2008-05-05T10:57:00.000-07:00

just when you thought you'd seen all the jambalaya dishes one could imagine, along comes this one...roasted tomato..rabbit...i'm there. wonderful. as always.

2008-05-05T09:46:00.000-07:00

Peter from Oz - You should try making your own jambalaya sometime (omg, did you eat Popeye's in the US?).

Susan - I have never made cacciatore, but have always wanted to. I should peruse your archives. Frozen rabbit is fine!

Norm - Do they also have a stockpile of weapons? God one time we had a Jiffy biscuit mix that had weevils in it. My mom sent an angry letter and they sent us a free case of Jiffy mix. The banana nut muffins weren't terrible, if I recall correctly.

Brittany - My husband grew up thinking chili mac was "goulash", so yours is not alone. What they don't know won't hurt 'em.

Peter the Greek - Those purists are also still bitter about Katrina, so I'd just better not cross them.

CEF - Batali meets Prudhomme? What a great analogy. Don't be evaded by Cajun or Creole food! It's just American peasant cuisine.

Pix - Nothin' wrong with a little Zatarain's once in awhile!

Court - Thanks. I did get to cook for my mom a few times, and she knew that I enjoyed it more than she did. :)

Núria - I think jambalaya seems like it could be a Spanish dish! Or at least it could easily be made from ingredients found in your kitchen. :)

Judy - the cornbread is the best part. Someone pointed out that it looks green. I guess that's what yellow and blue makes.

2008-05-05T08:44:00.000-07:00

I love your take on Jambalaya and that corn bread looks great. I also liked the "fun facts"-strange choice of words there but I guess that's the Heather we know and love! Sorry about your Mom she was really way too young.

2008-05-05T07:01:00.000-07:00

Jambalaya sounds so flavourful! Note that I love rice, rabitt and veggies and there's no cheese adding at the end... perfect for me!
That glass of red wine is something esential in my kitchen too ;-)

Buen Provecho querida!

2008-05-05T06:36:00.000-07:00

I keep three or four kinds of fat in the fridge (including the smoked duck fat.) Funny about the blue cornbread coincidence...

My Mom's birthday was May 18, so between that and Mother's day it's a shitty time. The boy and the garden help even it out, though.

2008-05-05T06:15:00.000-07:00

Your Mama would be proud. Im liking the rabbit variation. This time of year always sucks for me. But I honor her memory with cooking.

2008-05-05T02:46:00.000-07:00

Jambalaya how I adore thee. I used to just go out and buy those prepacked jambalaya rice packs- those were the days ;). Like the use of rabbit in here.

2008-05-05T02:45:00.000-07:00

i've never made anything cajun. i'm not sure why that is. i shy away from blackened food too. the whole genre evades me. but this recipe sounds wonderful. your slant on it appeals to me with the arborio/rabbit. like batali meets prudhomme...

as for your mom... too young to go. it would have been fun if you could have cooked for her some. i'll bet she would have loved it and been really proud of you.

2008-05-05T01:45:00.000-07:00

It's good that you wrote about proper Jambalaya as purists would kick yer ass, otherwise. With that outta the way, you can go in any direction.

I like the use of rabbit in here but I would have liked some shrimp in here...ever hear of a shopping list? Too busy watching RR?

2008-05-05T00:58:00.000-07:00

jeez, I never knew there were so many rules to jumbalaya (cuz I'm a classic pacific northwesterner like that). I usually just throw a bunch of shit in a pot (well, not actual shit...)add shrimp and sausage, then tell the husband it's jumbalaya. He believes me because he grew up eating food very much like your mom's cooking (he also lost his mom to cancer a few years back. I am very sorry to hear about yours)- jiffy was a stock item in his childhood pantry...
This meal you've created looks amazing. I am now experiencing 1 am munchies and it's all your fault.
