What You'll Need
Pork (skin on and bone in)
Pepper (freshly ground)
red onions (halved)
celery sticks (halved)
carrots (peeled and halved lengthwise)
Water or organic stock
Preheat the oven to 220 degree Celsius. Now take the pork and make sharp cuts on the body fat with the help of a sharp knife. Make sure that you do not make very deep cuts so as to reach to the meat. Now rub sea salt on these cuts thoroughly by pulling the skin, if required.
Now brush off the excess salt and turn the pork. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the other side of the pork. Now place the pork on a roasting tray and put it inside the preheated oven. Now roast for about ½ an hour or until you see the skin puffing up/crackling. Now reduce the temperature of the oven to 170 degree Celsius and take the pork out. Cover it with tin foil and put it back inside the oven.
Transfer the pork on a chopping board and scoop out some of the fat from the baking tray. Now add all the vegetables and bay leaves and mix with the leftover fat on the tray. Place the pork back on the roasting tray and roast for another hour. Take the veggies out and use the water to prepare the gravy. Serve.
