  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • Water to cover


  1. Stud the pork with the cloves.
  2. Place in a deep saucepan with a lid.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients and water until pork just covered.

  5. Drain and allow to cool before slicing to serve.

Serving suggestion

You can cook it the day ahead and serve cold or on the day and serve hot; no bones so easy to carve, so easy and truly delicious. Serve with a variety of salads or serve with thickly sliced white bread and fruit chutneys.

An easy sauce idea is to boil up some of the fruit chutney with water to thin and pour over the slices on the serving dish.
