Apple Pork Roast

Here’s a way to get some vitamins and fibre into the vegetable-challenged people in your life, whoever they may be…

3-4 lb pork loin roast

Salt & pepper

4 apples, peeled and quartered

2 cups baby carrots

1 cup sliced parsnips (optional)

1/4 cup apple juice

3 tbsp. brown sugar

1 tsp ground ginger

Place apple quarters on the bottom of the crock, and then place roast on top. Place carrots and parsnips around the roast.  Sprinkle all with salt and pepper. Combine apple juice, sugar & ginger. Spoon the glaze over the roast, covering entire top. Cover & cook on LOW 10-12 hrs. Remove the roast – the apples will be more like applesauce, but when you stir the glaze into it, it will thicken into a nice sauce for the vegetables.  Serve with rice.  You can use the leftover pork roast by shredding and mixing with BBQ sauce.
