    2. Bake the roast for 1 hour in the preheated oven. While the roast is baking, combine the pomegranate seeds and water in a large saucepan.

    4. After the roast has been in the oven for 1 hour, start to baste it with the pomegranate sauce, using a brush to apply to the top and sides. Continue to roast the pork until the internal temperature has reached 80 degrees C. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 20 minutes before carving and serving.
