Recipe of the week: wild boar pastrami with cream of beans

Wild boars are good, lean and contain a lot of beneficial fatty acids. So, but also given all the problems the world has with domestic pigs, we should eat more wild boars.

I sit in the car at night and drive the narrow country road from Stockholm to Risaru. Pedestrians run past Bogesundslandt right in front of the car. There will be a dent and I will have to summon the game guards. The pressure increases exponentially. I, picking a lot of mushrooms, find myself compelled to see my best areas of mushrooms swollen and utterly destroyed. Of course we should allow wild animals to develop but wild boars that destroy a lot should be kept at a reasonable level.

I also like the trend of eating more bushmeat as the animals live their normal lives. After all, the wild boar is our wild boar – and with all the problems we have with raising domestic pigs, we still have to eat more wild boars. I’m glad it was one of the ingredients in the Chef of the Year final.

The meat is a little hard to attack but can be very tasty if you add fat and strong seasoning. For example, excellent for sausages and other Charcuterie. It is low in fat and contains a lot of beneficial fatty acids. So enjoy this week’s recipe for wild boar pastrami with champagne cream on the beans. An old recipe that I discarded. Pastrami can be found on my Christmas table.
