This recipe if from the Buxton Inn in Granville, Ohio. Two school teachers are busy restoring not just the inn, but the whole block in this town amid Ohio's Welsh Mountains. People drive from miles around to eat at this beautiful inn. This is an awesome dish. If fresh berries are not available, of course you can use frozen. If you prefer not to use brandy, you could use apple juice.

I have made this recipe for years and then LOST IT! I've been frantic to find it again and thrilled I have because it is the BEST stuffed roast pork I've ever had! The pork and stuffing are so good themselves it doesn't even need the raspberry sauce! The only thing I'd "correct" about it is the number it will serve. It's more like 4 - 6 people.
I made this roast for a dinner party and what a hit! Easy to prepare, and absolutely delicious. The only change I will make the next time is half the stuffing, it was way more than we needed. The Raspberry sauce could be used for a lot of things (i.e. ice cream, cheesecake,etc...) Thanks for a great recipe
