• Salt

Preheat a griddle pan.

Half fill a medium pan with water. Bring to the boil and season with salt.

In a small frying pan, gently melt the butter and sugar.

Wild Boar Chops with Juniper and Rosemary Butter, and Apple sauce

Serves 2

• 2 Wild Boar chops
• 5 Juniper berries
• 8 Fresh Rosemary leaves
• 50g Butter
• ½ Lemon juice
• Olive oil
• 150ml Dry cider
• Seasoning

For the Apple sauce
• 2 Bramley apples
• ½ Lemon juice
• 50g Sugar

Peel and core the apples then cook over a low heat with the lemon juice and sugar, until they are reduced to a pulp.

Pound the Juniper berries and Rosemary to a rough paste then add the butter and lemon juice and mix thoroughly.

In a heavy based frying pan heat a little olive oil, then add a spoonful of the Juniper butter to the pan, season the chops with Salt and Black pepper and fry for 5 or 6 minutes on each side until they are nicely golden brown and cooked through.

Take them out of the pan and put on a warm plate.

Pour off any excess fat from the pan and add the cider, scraping any sticky bits from the bottom of the pan and stir into the Cider. Add a little seasoning and reduce a little.

Plate up the chops and spoon on the remaining Juniper butter, then pour over the Cider to melt the butter and serve with generous spoonful of Apple sauce.
