Glazed Rosemary Pork Roast

For a change of pace, I'll serve this special pork roast at holiday gatherings. It's a welcome break from traditional turkey or ham, and when dressed with an herb infused glaze featuring rosemary, thyme and sage, its flavor is unbeatable. —Joyce Manier, Beech Grove, Indiana
