Roast Pork & Apples
Recipe by Zola Nene
2 Tbs sea salt flakes
1 tsp Chilli Flakes
2 tsp aniseed
4 tsp dried sage
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp black peppercorns
2kg pork belly
Preheat oven to 240c
Grind together the spices to form a coarse spice rub (I do this using a pestle and mortar… but if you don’t have one, use ready-ground spices for this recipe)
Reserve 1 tablespoon of the spice mix, then rub the remaining spice all over the pork to coat.
Place the pork into the oven and roast for 1 hour – the crackling with become puffed and golden.
Turn the temperature down to 180c.
Cut the apples in half, then squeeze over the juice of half a lemon and toss in the reserves spices.
Arrange the Apple halves in the roasting on with the pork, then roast in a 180c oven for 1 hour.
Serve pork sliced with your choice of veggies and the roasted apples alongside.
