Wild Boar Superb Sausage

This is a great sausage made from wild boar, pork belly (bacon) and beef. Although boar is a wild pig, nevertheless its meat is much leaner and will benefit from some pork fat. Beef is added due to its water binding properties; by adding extra water we create a juicier product.
