Bring 2 litres of water to a simmer with the white wine and chopped vegetables with a bouquet garni or stock cube. Cook for 25 minutes and then add the knuckles of pork and cook for 1 hour.
Turn your oven on and preheat at gas mark 6-7/210 °C. Place your pork on an oven rack to roast in the oven for 1 hour. Place your cut vegetables in a baking tray, below the rack with the pork. Cover them with water mixed with vegetable stock.
Pour the vegetable juice over the pork regularly during cooking. This will make your meat moist, tender and a little sweet!
Cooking Tips: If you have a pressure cooker, 30 minutes will be enough to poach your knuckle of pork.
You can accompany your knuckle with mashed celery or a classic mashed potato. The pork is perfectly cooked when the flesh comes away easily from the bone.
Serve this winter dish with a wholegrain mustard.
