You will need :

1 x leg of pork, approx 2 kg – 2,5 kg
salt to taste
olive oil for rubbing
apple sauce for serving

What to do:

Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Pat the leg of pork dry with kitchen paper.
Brush the skin with olive oil, then sprinkle on the salt. This will make the crackling. Place open on a wire rack in an oven-roasting tin.
Roast the leg for the required amount of time. Calculate as follows: for every 500 g, roast it for 30 minutes. At the end, add on 15 – 20 more minutes. The skin on top should be golden brown and crisp. You can use the oven grill for a little while to help this process. (make sure it doesn’t burn).

When done, remove pork from oven and leave in a warm place to “rest” for 8 – 10 minutes. This “settles” the juices. Carve thinly against the grain.
Serve with gravy, roast potatoes, vegetables and apple sauce.
