The secret in how to cook roast pork to perfection is to keep the rind dry. Pat it dry with paper towels then add the salt liberally. In my Mum's roast pork recipe, she also adds vinegar and it's always sensational.
But the key is a dry rind AND a very hot oven at the beginning. This blisters the rind and makes for the crunchy crackling.
The next secret is to slow cook the meat so that it remains sweet and juicy, so turn the heat down and cook it on moderate heat. Take care not to over roast - that's when it becomes dry and tasteless.
Now you've learned how to cook roast pork and wasn't that ever so simple.
Serve with steamed vegetables and potatoes.

Easy Recipes Carving Tips
Always allow the roast to rest. It will keep cooking while resting.
To carve, firstly remove the crunching crackling by cutting it from below the rind. Remove to another plate and slice the yummy crunchies. If it's too soft for your liking, pop it back in the oven at 450F/220C to dehydrate further.
Then slice the roast by slicing against the grain.
