Pork and Apple with Leek Mash

This is a deliciously sweet dinner, which is ideal for the weekend, when you hopefully have a little extra time on your hands. I don’t often eat pork, but when I do, I’m reminded of how delicious it is. Annabelle always gives this meal a really good go, which surprised me at first as she usually prefers red meat, I have a feeling the sweet apple sauce might have something to do with it!
