Take some time to cook your own Pickled Pork this weekend, and enjoy the benefits all week long, with a great supply of ham to serve in sandwiches and salads.

Serves 4

1 orange

8 whole cloves

1.5kg piece of pickled pork

2 tbsp golden syrup

3 large carrots, peeled, cut into 5cm pieces

4 small pickling onions

2 tsp black peppercorns, coarsely crushed

2 leeks, trimmed, cut into 4cm pieces

parsley stalks

1 Stud orange with cloves. Place pork into a deep saucepan and cover with cold water. Place over a high heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium.

2 Add orange and golden syrup to pan. Simmer for 40 minutes, skimming top of pan throughout cooking.

3 Add carrots, onions, peppercorns, leeks and parsley stalks to saucepan and cook for 40 minutes or until soft. Serve with the vegetables, drizzled with the cooking liquid.

Tip: Follow tradition, if desired, and serve the pickled pork with Mashed Potato and Mustard Parsley Sauce.
