1 pork shoulder

100g butter

1 cinnamon quill

2 star anise

Bunch sage

Salt and pepper


Place two long lengths of foil on top of one another.

In the middle place 1 cinnamon quill, 2 star anise, 3 garlic cloves, 100g butter, sage leaves.

Turn the shoulder over and season the bottom with salt and pepper and turn again so the shoulder is sitting on the Cinnamon butter etc.

Roll the sides of the foil up around the shoulder into a boat so when you cook the shoulder no juices escape, still leaving the skin exposed.

Pre heat oven to 220 degrees place shoulder on a rack in a tray in oven and leave for 15 minutes, then turn down the oven to 150 for 3 hours.

Take the pork shoulder out and leave to rest for 30 minutes.

Now time to enjoy your slow roast pork shoulder.
