Cranberry Glazed Pork Roast
Meet the Cook: Many pork recipes were too spicy for me, so I decided to try this sweeter alternative. That was 18 years ago, and it became a family favorite. It tastes great the day after in a cold sandwich, too.
Today, our two daughters make this roast often. We also have eight grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.
