Slow Roast Pork with Tracklements Apple & Sage Jelly Jus 

A sensational centrepiece for Easter, the oven does the heavy lifting with a long slow cook, while you sip a chardonnay … 

Serves: 6

What You’ll Need: 

  • 2kg good quality pork shoulder – bone in, skin on 
  • Sea salt and black pepper 
  • 125g (1/2 jar) Tracklements Apple & Sage Jelly 


  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/gas mark 7 
  • Score the pork skin with a sharp 
  • knife – about 1cm apart – through the skin and fat but try not to go through to the meat 
  • Rub sea salt into the scores. Season the underside of the joint with salt and pepper and place skin side up onto a roasting dish. Cook for 40 mins, uncovered (you’re waiting for the skin to puff up and start to crackle) 
  • Turn the oven down to 150°C/300°F/gas mark 2. Cover with two layers of tin foil so no moisture can escape and cook at the bottom of the oven for around 4 ½ hours 
  • Remove the tin foil, baste the pork with the juices and cook, uncovered, for a further hour or until the crackling is crispy 
  • Remove from the oven and let it rest. Transfer the juices to a pan, wait for them to separate and pour off the fat. Stir in the Apple & Sage Jelly, heat gently until the jelly has melted and serve with your favourite accompaniments; roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower cheese (with a touch of Tracklements Sweet Mustard Ketchup – you’ll thank us for this tip later!)
