Holiday.Cook's picture
  Honey 3 Tablespoon
  Coarse grain mustard 3 Tablespoon
  Cloves 6
  Pork belly 1 1⁄2 Kilogram, on the bone, skin scored
  Cinnamon sticks 2
  Fresh chicken stock 300 Milliliter (Use Cube Or Concentrate And Make Up To 300 Milliliter)
For colcannon
  Floury potatoes 1 Kilogram
  Unsalted butter 50 Gram
  Spring cabbage 500 Gram, washed and finely sliced
  Spring onions 6 , finely chopped
  Double cream 4 Tablespoon

Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5.
Mix the honey, mustard and cloves with 400ml warm water, adding a good pinch each of salt and pepper.
Put the pork into a small roasting tray and pour the honey mixture all over, rubbing it into the skin.
Break up the cinnamon sticks and scatter around the pork.
Cover the tray with foil and roast for 2 1/2 hours.
About 20 minutes before the end, remove the foil, pour any pan juices into a saucepan and raise the oven temperature to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7 to crisp up the skin (it won't crackle completely).
Meanwhile, boil and mash the potatoes.
To make the colcannon, melt the butter in a pan, add the cabbage and cook gently till soft.
Mix in the spring onions and mashed potato, then beat in the cream.
Heat through and season with salt and pepper.
Take the pork out of the roasting tray and allow to rest for at least 10 minutes before carving.
Boil the pan juices and stock until reduced by 2/3.
Season if it needs it.
Carve the pork and serve with the gravy and colcannon.
