I most like to add apple.

Apples or pineapple

Almost any fresh fruit goes well with savory food. I love to cook with apples and cranberries-even together. Or citrus with meat and vegetable dishes. This sounds good, too.

This looks so pretty and delicious. It would be great for a dinner party. I think I would add a bit of garlic and rosemary for more taste dimension.

Apricots are a wonderful accompaniment to pork. This is a good idea instead of apples and a nicer version if you ask me. I am definitely going to make this recipe. I think it would be nice to eat some crispy roast potatoes with this and some of that sauce. I would also make some butter carrots to go along with this. I think that would be a perfect meal.

I made this roast for New Years Day and I can't even tell you how great it was. Eating Pork on New Years Day has been a tradition in my Italian Family for generations. It's symbolic because the pig "never looks back, and always moves forward" so we begin the year "moving forward". Anyway...back to the recipe, the flavors are phenomenal, the sweetness of the apricot preserves, and the savory fresh thyme, blended perfectly with the Italian flavors of garlic and olive oil. It was definitely not the "usual" roast pork, it was tender and juicy...we have a new roast pork tradition!!
