Prosciutto and chard wrapped pork with goats cheese and elderflower

There is an amazing amount of elderflowers around  and I can’t find a good place to pick enough to make something substantial such  as cordial or wine. I picked a few flowers and brought them home. I wasn’t sure what to do with them but I had an idea.

I had a pork tenderloin for dinner and I thought it might be nice together with the elderflower. We went to the allotment to get some chard and some kale. I picked fresh bay leaves and fresh herbs in the garden and then I was ready to get cooking.

I started by roasting the chard stems, the kale and some bayleaves and I boiled some new potatoes.

Roast the pork in the oven for 25-30 minutes. When cooked let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing it. Serve with seared courgette, the boiled potatoes and a rhubarb vinaigrette, you can find the recipe here.

The roasted vegetables were nice and crispy. The elderflower flavour was quite subtle but it was great with the pork. I wasn’t sure it would work but it did.

    How interesting and creative to use elderflower with pork! And I love all the layers around the pork, especially the swiss chard. I do get tired of swiss chard rather quickly, but we grow it anyways because it grows so well….maybe I wouldn’t get so tired of it if I could think of ways to use it as creatively as you!
