The colorful cranberry sauce in this recipe has a sweet tart flavor that makes it a wonderful accompaniment to juicy pork. There is plenty of sauce for each serving of pork.—Jessica Philleo, Carmel, Indiana

"I had to alter the original recipe because I didn't have some of the items. I substituted chablis blanc for the marasala, balsamic vinegar for the raspberry vinaigrette, a white onion for the red, 2 small apples instead of one large, and had a 4.6 pound roast. I had to omit the brown sugar because I am on a strict, no carb diet.

This recipe was easy to assemble so I loved that aspect of it. There was a lot of fruit to go around and accompany the meat. In the end, it was too watery for me so I would have added another teaspoon of cornstarch. And it was also kind of tart to taste. I would perhaps add a seasoned salt to make it more flavorful. Or even orange peel or orange juice to spice it up a bit.
I think this recipe has a lot of potential since it could be so versatile! :)
