2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 small garlic clove -- crushed

Cut rabbit into serving-size pieces. Reserve liver. In small saucepan, cook salt pork in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain. In Dutch oven or heavy saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons butter. Add salt pork and cook for 5 minutes, or until slightly brown. Remove and set aside. Add rabbit to pan, and cook for 10 minutes, or until rabbit is slightly browned on all sides. Add onion and garlic and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Return salt pork to pan. Add salt, pepper, and wine. Bring to boil. Cover and continue cooking briskly for 20 minutes.
