Leg of candied boar

Recipe Leg of confit wild boar


Wild boar haunch recipe, I chose a low temperature recipe to make this leg. Of course it’s a bit long, but the advantage is that you can do it two or three days in advance. The meat remained divinely soft with an almost exceptional tenderness. The sauce was deliciously fragrant, smooth and shiny at the same time, besides the photo speaks for itself. What a pleasure to make a dish with so much flavor, it melts in your mouth. For fun, I cut it with a spoon and yes it is a leg of leg with a spoon, this expression takes on its full value with this leg of candied boar. I was almost surprised at this sauce which shone like a mirror and its scent was intoxicating. Maybe you find that I abuse with all these compliments, well no it’s still far from reality, I loved my haunch of candied boar. A little thought for Daniel who provided me with this little boar, a big thank you.
