Bunny and Barley Stew

Bunny and Barley Stew

When the whole is greater than the sum of the two parts. This was totally based on needing to put something together in rush tonight.  I had some rabbit joints in the freezer cooked ages ago ,but not a lot.   I had  some of the barley vegetable soup made yesterday but again not a lot.  Bash the two together with plenty of red wine gave me what I am going to call Bunny and Barley stew .

If you were going to make it from scratch enough for four

    Why do you soak the rabbit joints overnight in water, does it tenderise the meat or something?
