I cant really remember if it took 24 hours last time i did it. I can only remember it was gorgeous, full of cloves.

Hello Donkey, hope you are well x

i think it was loin?

i'm ok, hope you're well too missus x

i think i might be thinking of a different recipe. My sister does it. It's a whole shoulder of pig. Cook on lowest heat for 23 hours, then whack up the heat to full for the last half hour to make crackling. It's fab
