Autumn Harvest's Best Pork Roast

"Pork, when cooked to perfection, is my favorite meat. I started serving this dish last fall when apples were being harvested and it was a huge hit. I like granny smith but many others will do just fine. Some people like to eat the apples with the pork. I prefer them just to flavor the meat and sauce."

  • Rub pork loin with pepper and salt to taste.
  • Brown sides in frying pan.
  • Line apples on the bottom of a crockpot.
  • Lay pork loin on top of apples.
  • Whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour over pork loin and apples.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  • *Note:I use Livingston's Chablis Blanc which is about$4.00 a bottle in the grocery store. However, Beringer's Chenin Blanc or a nice German white wine (like Reisling) would be lovely as well.
  • **Note:I use my mom's homemade peach jam. If you use plain peach jam be sure to add 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of ground clove for a wonderful flavor.

    Great recipe!I used cortland apples and I added an onion along with the apples to make it a little more savory. The flavor was perfect. Thanks for the recipe!

    I made this roast exactly as directed by Kim, including adding the recommended cinnamon and ground clove. It was moist, but somehow lacked flavor. I think if I were to prepare this roast again I will increase the brown sugar.

    I added some stalks of celery for the pork loin to rest on in addition to the apples. The pork was very tender, moist and I was glad because I was serving to my inlaws.
