This recipe comes from a web site I found called Rock Recipes, from Newfoundland.

- 3 lb pork loin or rib roast
- 3 large granny smith apples, peeled and cored
- 3 T olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ c honey
- ¼ c apple cider vinegar
- ½ t pepper
- ¼ t sea salt
- 1 t Chinese five spice powder
- ½ t nutmeg
- Season the pork with salt and pepper and place roast on a rack in a roasting pan.
- Cook roast for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.
- While roast is cooking, dice apples (about ¼ inch dice).
- Add garlic and olive oil to a large saute pan and cook for a minute or two over medium heat to soften garlic.
- Add honey, apple cider vinegar, pepper, sea salt, Chinese five spice powder, and nutmeg.
- Bring the mixture to a boil and then simmer until volume is reduced by about half.
- Increase heat to medium-high and add diced apple. Cook until most of the liquid has reduced off.
- After roast has cooked for 30 minutes, spoon the apples over the top. Put roast back in oven and cook uncovered at 350 degrees until internal temperature reaches 170 degrees.
- Let pork rest for 15 minutes before serving.
