  • 1 center-cut pork loin roast (about 3-1/2 lb.)
  • 1-1/2 cups cranberry-apple juice, divided

  • Methods/steps
    Place pork roast in large resealable food storage bag and combine 1-cup cranberry-apple juice, chardonnay, ginger and cardamom in medium bowl. Pour over roast, turning to coat. Seal bag. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove roast from marinade; reserve marinade and place roast in roasting pan. Pour marinade over roast. Bake, loosely covered with foil, 1 hour. Remove foil; continue baking 30 minutes or until internal temperature of roast reaches 165 degrees when tested with meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of roast, not touching bone. Transfer roast to cutting board; cover with foil. Measure juices from pan. Add enough remaining cranberry-apple juice to equal 1-1/2 cups. Combine juices and apricot preserves in small saucepan. Stir water into cornstarch in small bowl until smooth; stir into juice mixture. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook until thickened, stirring frequently. Add dried cranberries, apricots and raisins; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Cut roast into thin slices. Drizzle some sauce over roast; serve with remaining sauce and garnish.
