* Place the Pork, 'skin-side-up' on a wire rack resting on a tray full of Cider. The pork must be clear of the cooking liquor.
* Cover and seal with two layers of Tin-foil so the joint can Steam in the Cider.
* Cook for 4.5 hours, and don't fiddle or mess about with it!

* Reserving the original tray and its juices, place the joint on its rack over a clean, dry roasting tray and Roast uncovered for a further 30 minutes.
* When the Pork is cooked, use two forks to shred the pork into tiny pieces.
* To the juices, add the final Sugar, taste, and then add a splash or so of white wine vinegar to balance the flavours. Use a wooden spatula to get all of the goodness from the pan and then whisk well.
* Tip the Pork into the Sauce and heat until it is reduced to a sticky mass.
