  3. Combine cornstarch and remaining raspberry juice until smooth; stir into the saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in the butter, lemon juice, food coloring if desired and reserved raspberries.

"The pork turned out good, but I used 2 2lb loins with same amount of seasoning as indicated. The sauce was overpowered by the nutmeg?, but good none the less. I plan to reduce the spices by half next time I make the sauce to see how much of a difference there is."

"Evidently I cooked my roast too long since it was very dry. With 1-1/2 cups sugar the raspberry sauce was extremely sweet."
