    7. Add the cranberries, sage, herbs and almonds to the bowl and mix.

    8. Take your loin of pork and score the skin one way 3/4 through. Take your knife and slice the meat horizontally 3/4 of the way through and open it up like a book.

Lovely cold for Christmas lunch or hot straight out of the oven.

Use a rack to bake so the cracking can crackle.
