Directions
1.
In a medium-size bowl, stir together 2 to 3 tablespoons of the jelly, 1 tablespoon of the lime juice, the red pepper and garlic. Drain oranges and discard liquid. Chop oranges, drain off any liquid after chopping and stir into bowl along with cilantro and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Heat oven to 425 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/3 cup jelly and 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice. Spread over pork roast. Line roasting pan with aluminum foil. Place rack in pan; add 1/2 cup water. Place pork on rack.
3.
Roast at 425 F for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F; roast another 40 to 45 minutes or until internal temperature registers 150 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove from oven, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest 10 minutes. Cut into thin slices, sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper and serve warm or at room temperature topped with the orange sauce.

Tuscan-Style Roast Pork with Rosemary, Sage, and Garlic

This juicy roast gets a flavorful, burnished crust from its time on a rotisserie grill. If you don't have a rotisserie, you can grill the pork over indirect heat for equally delicious results. Steer clear of pork loins labeled "extra tender" or "guaranteed tender," because they've been treated with sodium phosphate and water and will be too salty if brined.
