Add the basil, rosemary, garlic, sea salt, and black pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely crumbled. Add the butter and Wild Boar Lard and process until very smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.


Place a 12” x 12” square of parchment or saran wrap down on a flat surface. Scoop the compound butter out into a long log-like shape at one end of the square. Gently roll the butter along the remaining paper/wrap, smoothing it as you roll. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until firm, before serving.
