This is my go to recipe when I’m having friends round. After the pork has been in the oven for an hour, I put a red apple in a separate oven tray (one apple per person, whole apple stalk and all) then I serve the dish straight from the oven with the pork, the apple and a greek salad that I’ve prepared earlier in a rammikin pot. Everyone loves it and the whole lot is super easy!!
