This is a recipe I made up when my husband requested a 'roast that tastes like Christmas.' It's a savory-sweet pork roast with cranberries, apples, and cloves. You can add ground cloves to the glaze instead of using whole cloves.

  • Place pork roast into a roasting pan; push whole cloves into the meat. Cover the roast with apple slices.

  • Mash cranberry sauce in a bowl with a potato masher; stir chicken broth, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger into cranberries. Pour about half the cranberry mixture over the pork roast. Cover with a lid or a sheet of aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Pour remaining cranberry mixture over roast. Sprinkle orange zest over the cranberry sauce.

  • Return to oven and roast until cranberry mixture forms a glaze and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meat reads at least 145 degrees F (65 degrees C), about 30 more minutes.
