    1 cup (250ml) boiling water
    1/3 cup (55g) seeded prunes, chopped finely
    1 tbsp toasted pine nuts
    2 tbsp coarsley chopped fresh coriander
    1/4 cup coarsley chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Place remaining couscous mixture in small ovenproof dish; cook, covered, in moderately hot oven abou 10mins or until heated through.
Meanwhile, heat pan juices in baking dish on top of stove; add remaining cider, apple, onion and sugar. Cook, stirring, until apple is just tender. Serve sliced pork with apple mixture and couscous.
