Harvest Pork – Revised

1 pork tenderloin or roast, trimmed of fat

1 cup orange juice concentrate

½ cup dark brown sugar

2 apples, peeled and sliced (Courtland or Granny Smith usually)

1 cup or so of fresh/frozen cranberries or craisens

1 cup of fresh/dried plums (optional)

1 heaping tsp each of ground ginger,  allspice; galganal (opt)

A handful of whole cloves



Put fruit and orange juice concentrate into the bottom of the crockpot

Trim the roast/loin of fat and brown it in a hot pan.

Mix the ground spices and brown sugar together, and rub all over the roast; add any excess to the fruit in the crockpot.

Push the whole cloves into the roast all over, and add meat to the crockpot.


Cook on low for about 8 hours; optionally cook on high for 1 hour first to quickly raise the temperature of the meat.
