Cooking Instructions

Oven from frozen

Instructions: 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4 3 hours 20 mins For a crispier crackling, coat with a layer of oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Cover tray with foil and place on a baking tray in the centre of a pre-heated oven for 2 hours 35 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully remove the foil cover from the tray. Increase oven temperature to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6 and place back in the oven for a further 45 minutes. Leave to stand for 5-10 minutes before carving. To Carve: Place a serving fork in the centre of the joint and hold firmly, carefully remove ties. Remove the crackling by carefully sliding a sharp knife under the crackling and gently peeling it away. If necessary the crackling can be placed back into the oven to allow it to crisp up further. Carve joint into slices.

Don't waist your money on this poor quality joint.

The crackling was very good but when l removed the skin, underneath was the largest amout of white horrible jobbly fat l have ever seen on a pork joint (and pork is my favorate). The packet says it serves 8/9 but once l removed that horrible fat, it was only large enough to serve 3 good or 4 small portions and the quality of the meat was not good either, it was the same meat l would use for pulled pork. Very stringy and could not be sliced. The worsed piece of meat l have ever purchased form Tesco's.

Followed the instructions very carefully as I am not a cook. The meat was tough and underdone. The 'crackling' was soft and unappetising. very disappointing.

Waste of money.

Bought this for new years day . Very disappointing . Very fatty and tasteless. Will never buy again.

Separate joint from skin if you want crackling

2 stars

Bought one for Christmas day dinner. It wasn't wonderful taste or texture meat; quite grey in appearance and fatty, but I was able to get the skin to crackle although I did have to remove it from the joint and cook separately so we didn't enjoy it together with our meal. I wouldn't buy it again.

What a let down for Xmas
