  1. Step 1

    Roast the pork in a flameproof roasting pan following packet directions. Transfer to a serving platter and cover with foil. Set aside for 15 mins to rest.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, drain fat from the pan, reserving 2 tbs. Heat the reserved fat in the pan over medium-high heat. Add flour and stir with a flat-edged wooden spoon for 2 mins or until mixture is grainy. Add the stock and cider or apple juice. Bring to the boil. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 mins or until the gravy boils and thickens. Strain through a fine sieve into a jug.
  3. Step 3

    Combine the apple, celery, onion, walnut, mint, sage, vinegar and maple syrup in a small bowl. Season.
  4. Step 4

    Carve the pork and serve with the gravy and apple mixture.

    Easy slicing: try this trick to make it easier when carving any boneless pork roast with crackling. Turn the pork crackling-side down so you slice through the meat first, then the crackling.
