"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Danish Pork Roast with Apples and Prunes is also known as Flaeskesteg med AEbler og Svedsker

For this type Danish Pork Roast, you will need to find a butcher who will provide a pork roast with the fat "rind" left on the meat. It is this "crackling" that makes the roast a very Danish specialty!

With a sharp knife, "score" the pork "rind" close cut slits.
Add enough water to cover the bottom of a roasting pan.
Place the roast with the rind side down (in the water) in the pan.

Bake with the rind-side down at 400 for about 25-30 minutes.

Turn the meat over so that the fat-side is now up.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and return to the oven.

Lower the heat to 350. Roast until the meat is tender and the pork "rind " on top is crisp like a potato chip
(approximately 1 hours)

Peel and quarter the apples and poach in lightly sweetened water.
(Apples can be poached in 1 quart water and 1 cup sugar for about 10 minutes.)

Serve the roast with the apples, cooked prunes, red cabbage and potatoes
