A leveret is a young hare between 2 and 4 months old. The flavour of leveret meat is not as strong as that of the full- grown hare.

To cook a leveret, rub it well with butter and place it in a roasting tin. Roast the leveret in a fairly hot oven 375 °F (Gas Mark 5, 190°C) for 45 to 50 minutes, basting it frequently with the butter.

One leveret is sufficient for two people. Serve it with redcurrant jelly.
