I grew up on a pig farm, so I had to include a dish like this one! Choose good-quality, fat pork and cook it quickly under a hot grill. Doing this will make the fat crispy and nice to eat. The scrumpy added to the apples will really boost the flavour, and it’s very tasty with the black pudding.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 bramley apples
75g butter
150g caster sugar
75ml scrumpy
300g ready-made mashed potatoes
vegetable oil, for deep-frying
100g walnut halves
4 large pork chops
50ml olive oil
200g black pudding
500g spring greens
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Peel, core and dice the apples. Place the apples, 50g butter, 50g sugar and the scrumpy in a small pan. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and blitz until smooth, or purée with a stick blender. Add to the mashed potatoes and heat gently for 2–3 minutes, until warmed through. Season with salt and pepper, set aside and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a deep-fryer to 180°C. Coat the walnuts in the remaining sugar dissolved in 100ml water and deep-fry for 1–2 minutes, then drain on kitchen paper. Preheat the grill to high.
  3. Place the pork chops on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 4 minutes on each side. Slice the black pudding thickly and add it to the tray for the last 2 minutes, turning halfway through.
  4. While the pork is cooking, shred the spring greens. Melt the remaining butter in a large pan, add the greens and stir-fry for 2–3 minutes, until just tender.
  5. To serve, place some greens in the centre of each plate, top with the pork chop and black pudding, spoon some apple mash on the side and sprinkle with the walnuts.
