⅓ cup sugar
3 Tbsp fresh orange juice
2 sprigs fresh thyme

Remove Silver Fern Farms Venison Roast from the fridge and packaging and allow to bloom at room temperature for 10 mins.

Preheat oven to 220°C.

Heat a frying pan. Season Venison Roast, sprinkle with thyme. Melt butter in pan and sear Venison Roast (2-3 mins per side).
Transfer Venison Roast to a roasting dish lined with baking paper, roast until done to your liking (up to 16 mins for rare).
Remove Venison Roast from oven, cover with foil and rest for 10 mins.

Return frying pan to a low heat. Add butter, sweat onions until soft.
Add wine, vinegar, boysenberries, sugar, orange juice, and thyme. Simmer 10-15 mins until reduced by two thirds.

Put parsnips in a pot with milk, garlic and thyme, season. Simmer until parsnips are very soft.
Drain milk, reserve. Put parsnips in a blender, add cream, butter, and a little reserved milk. Blend until smooth.

Carve Venison Roast thinly across the grain.
Place parsnip puree on a plate, top with venison and boysenberry sauce. Serve with seasonal steamed vegetables.
