Boar behaves very similarly to pork but has a richer, sometimes nutty flavor. I like to prepare it just like pork, cooking it at 140°F (60°C) long enough to cook it through and pasteurize it.
Here I serve it with a sweet and spicy cherry chutney that complements the flavor of the meat really well. It also goes great with any sides you normally like to serve with pork, such as roasted vegetables, casserole, or a salad.
