Wild Boar Italian Sausage
Experience the thrill of taste with spicy, lean Wild Boar Italian Sausage. Delicious and bold, this sausage will fuel your hunger for adventure! If you are planning to cook over direct heat, we recommend a quick boil or slow braise in a flavorful liquid or beer before grilling or sautéing to retain moisture. Made by hand in Jackson Hole from 100% Texas feral pigs.
Wild boar is a rarity for most, and you may be wondering how to prepare it, so I’m here today with food pairing and recipe inspiration.
How you choose to prepare these sausages depends on the type you choose.
But whether you go Italian or Bratwurst, here’s a key tip:
Before grilling or sauteing, trap in the moisture by quickly boiling your sausages. Alternatively, slowly braise your sausages in broth, bouillon, wine, or beer.
How to pair these sausages?
Italian Wild Boar Sausages go well with:
Pasta: Choose rich tomato-based sauces like marinara or arrabbiata. Add vegetables such as roasted peppers, mushrooms, or spinach for added depth of flavor.
Polenta: Wild Boar Italian Sausage goes beautifully with creamy polenta. The savory sausage flavors contrast nicely with the smooth and slightly sweet polenta. Top it with a rich tomato or mushroom sauce for an indulgent meal.
Ratatouille: The vibrant mix of stewed summer vegetables is an ideal warm-weather pairing for Italian Wild Boar Sausage.
You also have plenty of options for pairing wild boar sausage with wine. Try chianti, pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc.
Packed in 1 lb packages (3 sausages per 1 lb). Order in quantities of 2, 3, 4, or 5 pounds.
In this age of commercially raised and mass-produced meat, it’s absolutely rare to have a wild meal.
Unless you’re a hunter or you know one, you might never discover the pleasure of wild boar.
What’s different about wild boar?
So many things.
Let’s start with taste. Texas wild boar (which is what we use in Wild Boar Sausage and Wild Boar Bratwurst) has a nutty, sweet flavor that’s bold enough to stand up to your stronger pairings.
That’s because these animals eat a diverse and wild, foraged diet. (Not the same feed of grain every day.)
Because they’re wild, their meat is also lean, with less fat and calories. It’s a healthy source of protein, rich in vitamins and minerals.
Also critically different: wild boar is sustainable. The hunters that supply us are helping to keep the wild boar population in check, which is a plus for the environment.
If you want something cleaner, more interesting, and more ethical than any pork, there you have it — wild boar.
