DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Rub boar on all sides with salt, pepper, and thyme. Place boar in a roasting pan and add water to pan. Roast in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove roasting pan from oven.
  • Prepare charlotte by adding apples, zest, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, brown sugar, wine, and Calvados around the roast.
  • Return pan to oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are cooked through.
  • Mix together applesauce, salt, and egg yolks and pour over apples.
  • Return to oven for 5 minutes longer.
  • Mix the butter with the bread cubes.
  • Sprinkle over the apple mixture and bake for 10 minutes longer, or until golden brown, or when meat thermometer registers 160F.
  • Remove roasting pan from oven, remove boar, and let rest for a few minutes.
  • Slice boar on the bias.
  • Using a spatula, transfer charlotte to a large serving platter. Place sliced boar atop charlotte. Garnish with thyme sprigs and serve.
  • Recommended wines: A full bodied Chardonnay will mar ry nicely with the apple flavor in the charlotte. A Zinfandel will emphasize the meaty flavors of the boar. Either wine is a treat with this dish.
