    Spicy roast pork

    Roast pork with an extra kick.

    • 1.2 kg pork neck
    • 6 Royal Gala apples, cut into wedges
    • 150g wildflower honey
    • 2 tbsp soy sauce
    • 1 garlic clove, chopped
    • 1 piece fresh ginger, grated
    • 1 star anise
    • 1 cardamom seed
    • 5 cloves
    • 1 piece cinnamon stick
    • 1 bay leaf
    • Extra virgin olive oil
    • Salt
    • Pepper

    1. Blend the star anise, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon and some peppercorns.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the blended spices with the garlic and ginger. Add the honey, 1 tbsp of oil and the soy sauce.
    3. Place the pork on a plate and rub it with the marinade, then cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours. You can leave the meat to marinate overnight if you wish.
    4. Preheat oven to 180°C.
    5. Drain the pork and transfer it to a tray. Roast in the oven for around 90 minutes, brushing often with marinade. After 1 hour, add the bay leaf and apples.
    6. When cooked, deglaze the juice from the pork and apples over high heat with a few tablespoons of water.
    7. Pour the glaze over the meat and slice the roast before serving.
