Jugging is a traditional British method of slow cooking which retains all the flavours of the meat while mingling them with those of the other ingredients. When I was a young child in Scotland, it was a treat to have jugged rabbit at my grandmother's house. Alas, in the early 1960s the British government killed just about all of the rabbits in Britain by deliberately spreading some fatal disease to control the population. Therefore, rabbit became a rather expensive delicacy and most Brits took to jugging other meats instead. Jugging originated in the Dorset area of England.
