  1. I want to make this with a pork shoulder which is juicier than a loin. Add the flavorings as a sauce brushed over the roast and then do it in a crock pot. The gravy should be wonderful. Love fruit roasted with pork.

    Patti, my husband and I are both diabetic and I am surely going to make this with a couple of tweeks to it. Will use (already have) no sugar added apricot preserves. That is really the only thing in there that would be off our diet. But…when you consider 1/2 cup of preserves, honey, and orange juice over 8 servings it would amount to very little anyway.

  3. Be good with chicken also.

  4. This looks so delishious, however I couldn’t make it cuz my husband is diabetic. But I will save this….thank you!
