Free range pork is produced exclusively for Waitrose by farms in East Anglia, following strict husbandry guidelines. The pigs spend their lives outside in small groups with access to warm shelters with straw bedding. In this recipe, the cider complements the sweetness of the pork and the delicious sauce can be soaked up with our recipe suggestion for creamy cheese and apple mash.
For the apple and cheese mash, boil 650g floury potatoes in lightly salted water until tender. Drain and mash with 100g Waitrose West Country Farmhouse Cheddar, 1 Red Delicious apple, grated, 1tsp lemon juice, a little butter and seasoning.
As an alternative, cut the pork into strips and stir-fry in hot oil, then add the carrots and apples and cook for 2-3 minutes. Pour in 150ml apple juice or cider and 2tsp wholegrain mustard and reduce by half. Stir in the crème fraîche and a handful of freshly chopped sage leaves and heat through.
