This was very tasty--love the spice mixture. I did not grind my spices and found the amounts to be about right. The roast benefitted from a good sprinkling of salt before cooking.

We really enjoyed this roast. The spice mix smelled just like sausage, and fennel is always a good companion for pork. I used a spice grinder to grind the seeds before rubbing them into the roast, and this made a really nice coating all over the meat. I had about twice as much seasoning as needed- next time I'd cut the dill and fennel in half. I also gave the roast a good dose of kosher salt before putting it in the oven. It took longer to cook than stated in the recipe, even though I only brought it up to medium, I needed to roast it for about half an hour longer. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers
