For the sauce


  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 240C/fan 220C/gas 9. Dry the skin of the pork with kitchen paper, then rub with the oil and season generously with sea salt. Sit the pork in a roasting tin, then roast for 20 mins. Reduce the heat to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5 and continue to roast the pork for 1 hr 20 mins until cooked and skin has turned to crisp crackling. If the skin isn’t crisp enough, turn the oven back up to 240C/fan 220C/gas 9 for a further 10 mins.

  • STEP 2

    While the pork is roasting, make the pear sauce. Heat the butter in a saucepan and sizzle the pear chunks and fennel seeds together until they start to brown. Add the perry or cider and sugar. Bubble everything down until the perry is reduced and has become sticky and caramelised, and the pear is tender and starting to collapse. If the pears don’t break down, use a potato masher to mash into a rough purée. Serve the sauce in a bowl alongside the pork with your favourite side dishes.
