Prep Time

Cook Time


  • 1/4 c. apple jelly
  • 1/4 c. dark rum or apple juice
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cracked pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 3 lb. boneless pork loin roast


Heat oven to 375°F. In small pot, combine jelly and rum or juice; over high heat, bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, 3-5 minutes. Cool; reserve.   

Mix cumin, salt, garlic powder, pepper and cayenne. Place pork in small roasting pan; rub all over with spice mixture. Roast until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of pork registers 155°F, about 1 hr. to 1 hr., 5 min, brushing several times with jelly mixture during last 15 min. of cooking time. Let stand 10 min. before slicing.
