1. Prick the pork all over.

2. Marinade Mix all the ingredients except the coconut milk and coriander in a saucepan and simmer for  15 minutes. Add the coconut milk and coriander.

3. Cool and pour over the meat. Marinate overnight  or for at least 1 hour.

4. To cook Remove the meat from the marinade and put on a rack placed over a roasting pan. Pour a little boiling water into the roasting pan.

5. Rub the rind well with salt and bake the leg at 160 °C for 25-30 minutes per 500 g plus 25 minutes extra. Brush occasionally with the marinade and oil. Cover the leg with aluminium foil if it browns too quickly and replenish the water in the roasting pan as needed. Put the leg under the grill for the last 5-10 minutes of cooking time to crisp the rind.

6. Bring the leftover marinade to the boil and cook well. Pour over the meat and bring to room temperature.

7. To serve Mix the apple slices and preserved ginger. Carve the leg of pork and serve with the apple and salads.
