Whenever I make this dish for friends and family, I'm reminded of the wonderful scent of the Maine orchards where we picked our own apples every fall until we moved to Missouri last year. The aroma of the pork and apples certainly takes the chill out of crisp autumn air.

Your family and friends won't believe you when you reveal the "secret ingredients" for this flavorful pork roast—peanut butter! I've served this roast to guests for years, and I can't tell you how many times I've sent copies of the recipe home with guests. For a change of taste, you can substitute toasted walnuts for peanuts and use walnut oil instead of peanut butter.

I REMEMBER this recipe from my childhood. My German grandmother made this roast every Sunday - it was our equivalent to everyone else's customary fried chicken dinner.
There were many happy times spent around Grandma's kitchen table enjoying this tasty meal.
