That looks amazingly! I have all the ingredients apart from rhubarb but I can improvise. The plum relish also looks yum!

We've got pork belly tomorrow too (if we get back from visiting DS's new premises in time to cook it). I love the recipe Rats has posted ... I do it with plums :chops: but we're going to be really pushed for time tomorrow as our plans have been changed for us so
I'll do it as a quick conventional roast ...

Pour some boiling water over the well scored crackling, dry with a hair dryer and rub in some sea salt and sunflower oil (or oil of your choice).

Cut a slit in the fat under the rind to make quite a big pocket and fill it with stuffing (I'll use sage, onion and apple with chopped onion and breadcrumbs and a beaten egg).

Roast in a hot oven (normal roast pork timings) and serve with roasties, runner beans, cider gravy and possibly Yorkies too if we have time.

I've been roasting belly of pork like that ever since I was an impoverished newly-wed in the 70s ... a long time before anyone had ever thought it possible that roasted belly of pork might one day appear on the menu of a smart restaurant :lol: :chef:

Thanks Suff's, may not have a huge amount of time either so will keep this in mind. Good to know it has always worked out OK!

Didn't realise mine was already coated in seasoning. Removed from plastic, scored with sharp knife and just added Chinese 5 spice sea salt and oil. It was very tasty with crunchy crackling and tender meat. Served with onion gravy and apple sauce. :chef: Very good. It was M&S by the way.
