Preheat oven to 220 C you need a roasting pan with lid
1 ,5 kg Piece pork loin roast (skin on), washed and dried. Score the skin and fat with a sharp knife. Dab the skin of pork with white vinegar with a paper towel. Let dry for a few minutes.

In a mortar and pestle grind the spices *- * together, once ground add olive oil and lemon juice and stir. Rub the wet marinade into the pork roast well and place in roasting pan at room temperature for 1 hour.
*2 garlic cloves chopped
*Pinch of ground cloves
*1/2 teasp caraway seeds
*1 tsp garlic powder
*1/2 teasp dried chilli flakes
*1 tbsp thyme
*Black peppercorns and coarse salt according to your taste
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 sliced onions
4 carrots sliced
1 1/4 cups Apple cider ( I used Hunters Dry optional ) you may use chicken stock
Arrange the onion slices and carrots in a roasting pan and place the roast on top. Cover with lid. Roast for 30 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 170 C, pour the cider/stock over the meat then roast for approx 1 hour uncovered or until the pork is tender and cooked through and there are no running juices when pierced.
The crackling should be crisp.
If requiring a crisper skin turn up the heat to 220 C and grill for a further 5 to 7 minutes. Rest the pork uncovered for 20 minutes then carve into slices and serve with gravy made from juices in the pan.
Check for seasoning.
