    Preheat oven to 175C. Place pork on a wire rack inside a roasting pan and, using a sharp knife, score pork skin. In a bowl, combine mustard and sugar and spread evenly over pork, then add remaining ingredients to pan and roast, basting regularly, until pork is mahogany in colour (about 3 hours). Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil and stand for 10 minutes. Thinly slice and serve.


Corned shoulder of pork has been cured in a brine solution. It may need to be ordered in advance from select butchers.
Drink Suggestion: Farmhouse cider. Drink suggestion by Max Allen
