You will need:
two cloves garlic
1 sprig rosemary
1 tbs lemon juice
2 tbs brown sugar
1 teaspoon cognac
For the Canapé:
I packet mini toasts, bagelettes or any other toasted bread crackers
50g goats cheese
140g fig jam
baby basil leaves (or any other delicately flavoured herb) for garnish
Preheat oven to 220`C . Weigh your pork. You need to allow 30 minutes roasting time per 500g meat.
Spike the pork with rosemary and garlic. Rub with a little olive oil and place into a roasting dish. Place into the oven and reduce heat to 180`C. Set your timer to 10 minutes.
Combine the brown sugar, lemon juice and cognac. Baste the pork every 10 minutes with the sugar mixture.
Season the meat generously, and allow it to cool completely before slicing thinly.
Assembling the canapé
Spread a little of the fig jam on each toasted bread cracker. Top with the roast pork, goats cheese and basil. Enjoy!
