Pork Roast With Spiced Apples


1-teaspoon salt
1/2-teaspoon ground nutmeg
1-teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 boneless rolled pork loin roast (approximately 4 to 5 pounds)

Spiced Apples:
1/4-cup honey
1/2-cup water
1-Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/2-teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4-teaspoon ground ginger
1/4-teaspoon ground nutmeg
2-medium apples; peeled, cored, and sliced

Combine salt, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon; rub over roast. Place roast fat side up on a rack, in a shallow roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer. Bake, uncovered at 325 degrees for 2-2 1/2 hours or until thermometer registers 160 degrees. Cover and let stand 15 minutes before slicing. In a medium skillet, combine the first 6 spiced apple ingredients, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until slightly thickened. Add apples, simmer uncovered until apples are just tender, stirring gently. Serve with sliced pork roast.

*both the pork roast and the apples will freeze nicely. Freeze separately in airtight freezer containers.
