Ever eaten Wild Boar? I’ve never eaten Wild Boar. Anyone ever seen a Wild Boar? I’ve never seen a Wild Boar. I read, that in the United States they live in the Southeast…Go Razorbacks???
I vote for “let’s eat it”. Well, somebody can kill it and I’ll eat it. Again, if I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, “If I had to kill my own food, I’d be a vegetarian”.
I just read a post over at Chez What about hot dogs. It seems that New York officially consumes the most hot dogs in the United States. Great post, and you can click HERE if you haven’t had a hot dog in a while and feel like getting tortured. His photos of hot dogs were salivatingly and ravenously good and made me want a hot dog sooner than NOW.
I didn’t have any hot dogs on hand, but if you remember a few weeks ago, I went on a field trip for some veal stock at Marczyk Fine Foods in Denver. I purchased the stock along with some other speciality items and one item I couldn’t resist grabbing were these Apricot and Cranberry Wild Boar Sausages and some really cool little New York Style buns.
I threw both in the freezer for just the right moment and after reading Chez What’s New York Dog post, the moment had arrived and ran as fast as I could to thaw them.
Well, these sausages were wildly delicious. I loved the texture of this meat. I’ll have to read up and see if that’s one of the characteristics of this animal, or if it had something to do with the first-class facility that processed the meat.
I served this with some yellow mustard and a side of sauerkraut heated with some brown sugar chopped apple and butter which made for a delicious meal. Next field trip to Marczyk’s I’ll definitely pick up another package, or two, of these sausages.
Thank you Marczyk Fine Foods and thank you Christo for reminding me that I was craving a hot dog.
