Step 1

While roasting your Pork Belly, in a medium saucepan mix first eight ingredients (apple cider, chicken broth, chopped onion, allspice thyme sprigs, cinnamon sticks, apple cider vinegar and bay leaf).

Boil until mixture is reduced to 1 1/2 cups, about 30 to 40 minutes.

Strain, pressing on solids to extract liquid and discard solids.
