    Love this mix. I add carrots, peas or leeks to my dish, delicious.

    Excellent item. I live in Brittany where pork, apples and cider are prolific. I used 2 packets for 1kg boneless pork chops and 1pt cider instead of water. I didn't add apples but used sliced potatoes and sliced mushrooms instead. I used a 900w microwave which was fine however, next time I might try the slow cooker. This was for a group of eight friends but I would probably freeze half of this quantity of pork if it's just for my family of 4. DELISH!

    Very nice, but I suggest using an extra apple.
