100g caster sugar
1 tbsp chopped thyme leaves
2 tbsp finely cracked pepper.
Mix the sugar and salt together and pack the muntjac fillet in the mix. Leave for 1 hour, turning once after 30 minutes, then remove and rinse well. Now roll the fillet in a mix of thyme and pepper and smoke in the box smoker for 7 minutes over a medium heat. Remove and cool. Serve with bread, butter and homemade redcurrant jelly.
2 sheets leaf gelatine
Simmer the redcurrants in sauternes for 20 minutes, then strain the fruit through muslin. Dissolve the gelatine in hot water and add to the fruit and wine liquid. Pour into a kilner jar and allow to set.
