Weigh the joint and calculate the cooking time. Score the rind of pork and place joint on a rack in a roasting tin. Open roast in a preheated oven for the calculated cooking time.


For the best crackling:

Make sure the pork rind is scored well.

Dry the joint with some kitchen paper towel.

Rub oil and salt into the rind on the joint or simply rub with a halved lemon.


Try serving the pork with roasted apples and a home made apple sauce.

Cut slits into the rind and stuff with fresh sage sprigs.
