Pork belly is a damn tasty cut. It's fattier than our other cuts of pork, but fat = flavour. It does require a little oven time but is very simple to prepare. The rendered fat is used to cook our spring greens, with a touch of garlic. Served with sweet apple and parsnip mash.

Pat the pork belly dry and rub it all over with a generous amount of salt

Transfer the coloured pork belly to a baking tray, fat-side down and keep the pan for later

Put the tray in the oven for 35-45 min or until the pork belly is cooked through

Tip: to check the pork is cooked, carefully pierce the thickest part with a sharp knife and, if it goes in easily, it's good to go

Cut the apple[s] (skins on) into bite-size pieces
