Roast with crackling

To help you cook the crispiest crackling, there are three things you need: heat, oil and salt.
• Firstly, preheat oven to 220°C
• Pat the surface of the rind dry with paper towel
• Rub a little oil and salt well into the scored rind
• Cook for 20 minutes at 220°C (this will begin the crackling process), then turn down oven to 180°C and cook for 45 minutes per kg
• Rest for 5-10 minutes and enjoy!

Roast without crackling

Remember, pork is at its juicy best when cooked medium.
