Pork Roast with Spiced Apples

"THE FINE FLAVOR of this pork roast is further enhanced when spicy-sweet apples are spooned over slices of the meat. This wonderful recipe made pork my favorite of all meats."

    Loved the flavors, sweet and savory. Easy to make, not too many ingredients. I substituted with pork tenderloin and cut the recipe in half. I served it with sweet potatoes. Will surely make again.
