Hydrocolloid - part 2

Well finally got my sample of N-Zorbit M, so will be fun experimenting with it. (original post here)

Dinner last night was a tasty falling apart belly of pork very simply prepared.

Seasoned and browned the belly on the stove, then set aside while some onions softened in the same pan (dutch oven), added in a couple spoons of fennel seed and sauteed a little longer to release the aroma.

Finally placed the pork back in the pot, with about a cup of cider. Put the lid on and in to an oven at 140°C for a few hours.

I was left with pork wonderfully soft and falling apart, and a ready made cider-onion gravy.
