3 whole star anise

6 apricots, destoned and halved

2 cloves garlic, sliced

4 sprigs thyme

3tbsp Extra Special Apricot Conserve

Heat a nonstick frying pan on a high setting. Rub 1tsp of rapeseed oil over the pork, and brown lightly in the pan for 5-6 mins.

Add 1tsp of rapeseed oil, the star anise and apricots to the pan. Cook for 3-5 mins, turning the pork occasionally, until the apricots begin to soften and caramelise.

Thickly slice the pork. Divide the cous cous between 4 plates then top with the pork and the sauce. Garnish with the extra sprigs of thyme, to serve.
