    Directions:

    1. 1
      Score pork skin, best to have your butcher do this.
    2. 2
      Place pork in colander and pour boiling water over to open the skin. Dry thoroughly and then place in fridge for 1-2 hours.
    3. 3
      Remove from fridge and rub with salt -- Then mix ground fennel seeds with olive oil and rub all over pork and into slits.
    4. 4
      The flavour is magnificent. Use your own judgement on cooking times, but a general suggestion is around 50 minutes per kilogram in a moderate to hot oven.

      PERFECT....I have been cooking for a long time and this was outstanding. I scored the pork deeply every 1cm deeply, the boiling water seemed to "open" the slits. I dried it off, poured over a little oil and rubbed in hte salt. I didn't bother refridgerating it or using the fennel as I like my pork natural. I baked it at 240oC for 30 minutes and 180oc for 3 hours, it was by far my best roast pork ever!! No more hit and misses with this method - thank you Barberal!!!

      I found this totally confusing....if you start at 190 degrees all you end up with is leather
      Why ommitt telling people they should start with a very hot oven,,,, must be some annoyed pork cookers out there if they followed this

      Sorry I couldnt rate the recipe higher as starting the oven at 190 degrees resulted in a hard skin with no blistering or true "crackle" and yeat I followed it to the letter the first time. However as cookingpompom suggested I started with a Hot oven preheated to 240 untill the rind was visibly blistering - roughly half an hour, and then reduced to 190 for the remaining cooking time and it was truly spectacular... seems like there might be a step missing in there somewhere :)
