Pork Roast with Quince

Pork Roast with Quince

You can make this dish with quince jam, or any jam of your choice – I would stick to the light ones though (apricot, peach).

Ingredients:

  • 1 Pork roast
  • 2 Tablespoons Quince jam
  • 3 Onions – cut in small pieces
  • 4 garlic cloves – chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • Sea salt – not ground
  • Cumin (if possible German cumin)
  • Pepper

Directions:

  1. Rub the roast with the quince jam.
  2. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and ground cumin.
  3. Place the onions and the garlic around the roast.

  4. Add the water, cover and bake for 45 minutes in a 350ºF (180ºC) oven. Uncover, check for water, and continue backing for another 45 minutes or until roast is well done and tender.
  5. Place the roast on a cutting board. Add 1 teaspoon cornstarch previously diluted in a little bit of water to the sauce.  Warm up so it thickens up a little bit.  Slice the roast, and return to the pan.
