This was the governor of CT wife's recipe. Great for a dinner party.
- 1 bone-in center cut pork roast
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1⁄4 cup applesauce
- 1⁄4 cup molasses
- 1⁄3 teaspoon ginger
- Have the butcher loosen the bottom bone in the roast. Line a roasting pan with foil, and add the roast. Cover loosely with foil. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes per pound of meat.
- Toward the last hour of baking time, combine the garlic, apples, molasses and ginger in a saucepan. Parboil the potatoes.
- Uncover the roast, add the potatoes to the pan, and spread the sauce over the meat. Cook until meat is done.
