1 frying size rabbit, cut into serving pieces
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup vegetable oil
Coat rabbit with mixture of flour, salt and pepper. Heat oil in heavy skillet. Place meat in skillet and brown well on both sides. Lower heat and cook, turning once again.
Drain all oil from skillet except 3 tablespoons. Add and brown 1/4 to 1/2 cup flour, stirring to scrape brown bits from skillet bottom. When mixture is brown and smooth, add 1 1/2 cups water slowly. Cook over low heat until gravy thickens to consistency desired.
