However cold and wet autumn gets, we can always make the most of its lovely seasonal flavours.
While root vegetables are abundant this time of year, and kale improves after the first frost, there is also a bounty of autumnal fruits on offer.
Moreover, with the festive season and its busyness around the corner, autumn offers the perfect opportunity to take stock and enjoy the flavours currently available on our doorstep.
It just so happens that porc tastes delicious with autumnal fruits and vegetables, and with a number of ways to cook and enjoy it, it is a delicious ‘go-to’ for any occasion, any day of the week.
You cannot beat roast porc with golden brown and crispy crackling, and it is even better when shared with family and friends.
So, why not invite everyone over for Sunday lunch and serve some stellar showstoppers like our slow roasted belly porc with apple, honey and cinnamon or our super slow roasted porc belly with crispy crackling.
For out-of-this-world crowd pleasers and full on autumn flavour, try our slow cooked porc shoulder in cider, apples and fennel, or our slow cooked roasted porc shoulder with apples, ginger, treacle and allspice.
