Spiced orange relish


1.Make spiced orange relish. Quarter unpeeled oranges; slice quarters thinly. Cook sugar, the water, vinegar and spices in medium heavy-based saucepan, stirring, over heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil; stir in orange. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour or until rind is tender and relish has thickened. Cool.
2.Meanwhile, preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced).
3.Dry pork with absorbent paper. Rub pork with half the oil then salt; place in large shallow baking dish, seam-side down. Roast, uncovered, about 40 minutes or until the rind crackles.
4.Reduce oven temperature to 200°C (180°C fan-forced); roast pork, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until cooked. Cover pork loosely with foil.
5.Meanwhile, combine spinach in large bowl with nuts, vinegar, cheese and remaining oil.
6.Serve sliced pork with salad and relish; drizzle with pan juices.

The relish can be made up to three weeks ahead; keep, covered, in the refrigerator. Return relish to room temperature before serving. This recipe makes about 1½ cups of relish. Store the remaining relish in the refrigerator for another use. Ask the butcher to score the pork rind finely.
