250g light muscovado sugar
2kg skinless, boneless loin of pork
splash white wine
few sprigs flat leaf parsley

Remove the pork from the oven and brush all over with the glaze, (reserve a few tbsp) Reduce the oven to 160C and cook for a further 40-50 mins, ensure you brush and baste the pork as it cooks, until it’s caramelised and glazed.
4. Remove the pork from the oven and roasting tray and leave to rest. Pour the remaining glaze into the roasting tray, and add the wine. Place the tray on the heat and bring everything to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for a few minutes until you have a thick gravy.
