Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 2½. In an ovenproof pan fry the bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Add the onion to the pan and fry until soft, then remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Dust the pork lightly with flour, then brown a third at a time in the pan, adding oil if needed. Remove from the heat and drain.
To the pork, add the bacon, onions, apples, sage, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir in cider and water. Cover and bake for 2 hours or until pork is tender.
