This is AMAZING! I have made this recipe twice now, and I would make it 100 times more. The only change I made was using all dried fruit and not soaking it - it totally works great without doing the soaking. I served the pork with roasted potatoes (made during the last 20 minutes when the roast was out), and honey glazed carrots and parsnips! SO YUMMY!
Excellent! The fruit and apples complimented the roast making for a roast that looked as good as it tasted. The aroma alone makes for a five. I was a little hesitant with the 400 oven temperature but followed through - made as posted and wouldn't change a thing. Am thinking to pork chops stuffed and baked. Had a difficult time choosing just three of your recipes for PAC - Happy I added the extra - thank you Shahana your recipes were a pleasure to make.
