Slow Cooked Pulled Pork with Home Made Apple Sauce and Crackling

I am not a meat eater, apart from chicken, generally however I just felt like some pulled pork and crackle.
I made this in the slow cooker, and roasted the crackle separately.
The apple sauce was simple - just boil up some peeled apples and mash them - no added sguar or anything!
This was absolutely delicious, and I may have to go back to eating meat!
: 15 minutes
: 7 hours
Piece pork leg, or any cut
About 6 apples
White wine vinegar
2 tsp barbecue sauce
Potatoes - optional
For the pork
Take the scored crackle off the meat, and cut any remaining fat off the meat.
Rub some oil and salt and pepper into the meat.
Put it in your slow cooker on high for about an hour. You do not need liquid as it will create liquid.
Turn the heat down to low for 6 hours, or medium for 5 hours. I put in some peeled potatoes for the last hour or so.
Take the meat out of the slow cooker, and "pull" it by shredding it with a fork and knife, or two forks.
Leave the liquid in the slow cooker, and add the meat back into this.
Add some barbecue sauce, stir, turn off the slow cooker, and leave it for about 10 minutes.
While the pork is cooking, peel your apples. I used 5 Granny Smiths, and one red apple.
Put them in a saucepan with a tiny bit of water, and bring to the boil.
Boil them for about 20 minutes or until they are cooked and soft.
Mash them with a potato masher - it doesn't matter if the mixture is not fine.
Leave this till you are ready to serve the pulled pork.
For the crackle
About 40 minutes before the meat is ready, preheat the oven to about 220°/200° fan forced.
Cut off a lot of the fat off the back of the crackle.
Put some white wine vinegar in a flat dish, and dip the crackle in this dish so it is wet all over.
Rub some salt over this - not too much or it will be too salty.
Put it between two oven racks - skin side up - so that it stays flat, and bake over a tray lined with baking paper for about 30 minutes or until it is crisp.
Serve all together - I served over the potatoes. Can be used in sandwiches/lunch boxes.
The second night I had it in a hamburger.
