Slow Food: Rabbit And Root Vegetable Curry

It’s snowing, a bitter wind is blowing…it just seems like cold weather and hearty soups are made to go together. And what’s better than a delicious, warming stew (made with in-season root veggies) that you can make in your slow cooker? Just toss in all the ingredients and leave it to work its magic!
