Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Crush the fennel seeds and peppercorns coarsely using a pestle and mortar. Add the garlic and some salt, and crush again to make a paste. Stir in orange zest along with the rosemary and oil.

  • STEP 2

    Rub the paste all over the pork, then cover with foil. You can now cook the pork or leave it covered in the fridge for up to 24 hrs.

  • STEP 3

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Thickly slice the orange and place in the base of a roasting tin with the onion. Put the pork on top and pour 600ml water into the tin. Roast the joint for 1 hr, add the wine to the tin, then roast for 1 hr more. Baste the joint a few times and add a splash more water if needed.

  • STEP 4

    Remove the joint from the oven, strain off the meat juices, tightly cover joint with foil, then leave to rest for 15 mins. Pour meat juices into a pan, add the jelly and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve it. Taste and add seasoning if necessary. Thickly slice the pork and serve with a little of the juices poured over.
