Loin of Pork With Apples

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

4 pounds loin of pork
Salt and freshly ground pepper
All-pupose flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
4 tart apples, peeled, cored and quartered
2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup cream, room temperature

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly score top of meat. Rub with salt and pepper and flour. Place bone side down on rack in a roasting pan. Roast for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the sugar and vinegar in a saucepan. Heat, stirring, until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Baste the pork with the vinegar-sugar mixture and reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Pour enough water in the pan to film the bottom. Continue to roast, basting every 20 minutes with the vinegar-sugar mixture, about 1 hour and 45 minutes longer (30 minutes per pound). Add more water to the bottom of the pan as needed. About 30 minutes before the pork is done, add the apples to the pan, turning to coat with the juices. Sprinkle with sugar and, turning occasionally, cook the pork until it is tender. Transfer the meat to a serving platter and surround with the apples. Skim fat from pan juices and add cream. Heat to boiling and serve with the roast.
