  1. Step 1

    Place the pork in a roasting pan and pat dry with paper towel. Place in the fridge, uncovered, overnight to dry out the rind.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat oven to 230°C. Rub salt over the rind and into the cuts. Roast for 30 mins or until the rind crackles. Reduce oven to 180°C. Pour the stock around the pork in the pan and roast for a further 1¼ hours or until cooked through, adding the leek, cabbage and apple for the last 30 mins of cooking.
  3. Step 3

    Cover the pork with foil and set aside for 20 mins to rest. Slice and sprinkle with sage. Serve with leek, cabbage and apple. Season.
