  • ½tbs duck fat

Method

1 Set your oven to 185 degrees.

2 Take a large frying pan or small roasting tray. Melt the duck fat in it and allow it to smoke a little.

3 Carefully add the chops, season them, brown on both sides and on the fatty edge for a couple of minutes.

4 Remove the chops from the pan and add the turnips.

5 Colour the turnips gently on one side then turn them over.

6 Add the cider, then lay the chops on top of the turnip.

7 Dot the turnips with butter, scatter the smoked bacon around, then tuck the sage leaves in among the turnips.

8 Bake for 25-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chops, until cooked through.
