Spiced apple sauce
1.Preheat oven to very hot, 220°C. Weigh pork and calculate cooking time (allow 45 minutes per kilogram for pork loin with rind).
2.Place pork on a rack in a baking dish. Drizzle with oil and rub salt onto pork. Bake for 20 minutes.
3.Reduce temperature to moderate, 180°C, and bake a further 1 hour 10 minutes, until cooked to taste. Cover loosely with foil and rest 15 minutes.
4.Make Apple Sauce as per method below.
5.Serve apple sauce with sliced roast pork.
6.Meanwhile, combine all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to boil on high, then reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes, until fruit is pulpy. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth.
To save time, ask your butcher to score the rind and truss whole loin with string. For a crisper crackling, keep pork uncovered in fridge overnight, to dry out rind.Note
