Pork booty with honey, mustard, orange and potatoes

A very tasty roast that will impress and pleasantly surprise your guests. Let me tell you that Cypriot pork is not only the most delicious meat we have but also the most economical. The secret to success is the low temperature during baking so that the meat is soft. Ask your butcher to leave enough skin on the boot you buy. Also, choose a piece whose bone will look and protrude for a more delicious result and a more impressive presentation.
