After failing a couple of roast lamb legs in recent times I went for a rack of pork today with a recipe that I found on Taste.com.au. Looking for as many healthy options as possible (without going OTT) Richard and I rode the 6km round trip to Komorovski Market hoping that the little old ladies in the free section (home grown produce) still had some good veggies and also to lessen the chances of eating at midnight which has happened more than once before. We found the market a lot busier than usual with most isles making you feel like you are in a flooded river full of black coats jostling you for no apparent reason. Unusually on this trip we didn’t run into any really super rude sellers and got what we needed in pretty good time. With back packs full I snapped this quick photo of an old lady making garlic chains to pedal to the rivers of people.
The preparation for this meal was surprisingly simple and not at all messy. Finally dinner was up around 5.30pm with an hours help from Daylight Savings which we hadn’t noticed had kicked in until timing the roast. Probably the last time I’ll be at the market at 9am on a Sunday morning!
The roast pork turned out pretty good. The crackling wasn’t that crackly but then we didn’t eat it anyway as we were going for the healthy option. The 2.4kg rack was turned into a small slither of one rack with a little stuffing and no roast apples. Yummy!
