Roast Pork with Cherry-Almond Glaze

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 65 min. + standing


10 servings

Your pork roast will never dry out during cooking with this sweet cherry glaze. You can also spoon the sauce over slices of baked ham.


  • 1 boneless whole pork loin roast (3-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) cherry preserves
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon each ground cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds


  1. Sprinkle roast with salt; place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the preserves, vinegar, corn syrup and spices to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Set aside 3/4 cup for serving. Stir almonds into remaining mixture.
  3. Brush roast with some of the glaze. Bake 35-50 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 160°, brushing frequently with remaining glaze. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with reserved cherry mixture.
