  1. Made this for dins tonight and was very impressed with the flavor. I was a bit short on port and topped it up with blackberry wine. The pork was very tender and the uncomplicated flavor was absolutely delicious - bold and distinctive.
  2. I can't wait to take this for a spin, I shall cook it down, then report back. I am a prune goon!
