OlivesIngredients

  • 2½ kg leg of pork cut into portions
  • 2 tablespoons 776 olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons 776 honey
  • 2 tablespoons ouzo
  • 5 garlic cloves, salt, pepper
  • 2 cups pitted 776 olives

For the marinade

Place the meat in an earthenware pot with a lid and cook at 180oC (356oF) for an hour, using a brush to regularly baste the meat with the marinade. Turn the meat over and baste again. After one hour, open the lid and pour the marinade over the meat, removing the orange peel. Add the 776 olives and cook for a further fifteen minutes. When the meat is golden, remove the meat and 776 olives and place on a serving dish and pour juices in a pan. Reduce the juices by boiling.
