This is our family's favorite recipe for pork roast. Yummy!
Took much longer to cook pork than noted in instructions. But it ended up being quite good.
I found this recipe years ago in another cookbook featuring recipes from the 40's. In fact, made it for dinner tonight. The cherry glaze is excellent---can be used with ham, pork loin and on chicken. Guests were using it as a dipping sauce for their bread.
