Prepare the pork roast

Make sure the skin of the pork is well scored all over into thin strips. Ask your butcher to do this for you or use a sharp knife or scalpel to do this yourself, cutting halfway through the fat beneath the skin.

Rub a little oil and the rosemary into the flesh side of the pork.

03
Roast the pork

Place pork on a roasting tray, skin-side-up. Rub a little oil and flaky salt over the skin, pressing in as much as you can.

Place in the oven and roast for 20 minutes. Lower the heat to 180°C and continue roasting the pork for 1½ hours. Test to see if the pork is cooked by inserting a fine skewer. The meat juices should run clear. If not done, cook for a further 30 minutes.

Remove pork from the oven and leave to rest, covered, in a warm place.

04
Make the gravy

Remove any excess fat from the roasting tray and pour in the cider or white wine and allow to bubble up. Season and serve with the sliced pork.
