“There’s nothing better than a roast pork for a holiday dinner. This recipe is particularly great.”
2 (16 ounce) cans jellied cranberry sauce
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup cranberry juice
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
4 pounds pork roast
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
salt to taste
1. Mash cranberry sauce with a fork or a potato masher. Stir in sugar, cranberry juice, mustard, and cloves.
2. Place pork roast in a large, roasting pan. Pour cranberry sauce mixture over the roast.
3. Cook at 275 degree F (135 degrees C) for 6 to 8 hours, or until meat is tender. Remove roast, and
4. With a metal spoon, skim the fat from the liquid in the roasting pan. Pour 2 cups of the remaining roasting liquid (add water to fill out the measure if necessary) into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Blend cornstarch and cold water to make a paste; stir gradually into boiling liquid. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Add salt to taste. Serve with the roast.
Although turkey is the most popular for Thanksgiving this recipe would be great during the holiday’s or anytime of year.
