Arrange the leeks in a shallow roasting tin. Put the pork on top and rub with salt and pepper.
Add the cider and sage. roast for 20-30 minutes or until the crackling starts to pop, and then turn the oven down to 150c/fan 130c/gas 2 and cook for 2 hours. If the leeks look as though they might be about to burn, add a little water.
