Hare Iliamna

10 lb Hare (winter phase)
Salt & pepper
4 tb Lard or oil
4 Onions
6 Potatoes
8 Carrots
1 qt Fresh Alaskan low-bush cranberries; picked after first frost
2 c Pineapple
1 Apple
1 Orange; unpeeled

Cut hare into 1/2-pound serving pieces. Soak 24 hours in lightly vinegared water. Wipe dry. Salt and pepper the pieces, roll them in flour and brown in fat or oil in a Dutch oven, then bake at 350 degrees F degrees, covered, until tender.

Add vegetables when meat is half done (perhaps after 45 minutes to an hour). Remove to platter and prepare gravy from drippings.

To make sauce, grind cranberries, pineapple, apple, and orange together. Sweeten to taste. Serve on the side.
