Roast Pork Loin with Peppery Pear Butter
This recipe serves:   

For the peppery pear butter:
2 1/2 cups peeled and cored pears, cut into chunks
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

For the roast pork loin:
1 boneless pork loin, about 1 3/4 pounds
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons minced, fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary or tarragon)
2/3 cup dry white wine

Cooking Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

2. Place the pork loin in a roasting pan and sprinkle with the herbs, salt and pepper.

3. Pour the wine into the bottom of the pan and baste occasionally. Roast the pork for about 1 1/2 hours until a meat thermometer reads 160F.

4. While the pork is roasting, place the pear chunks in a large, heavy-bottomed, stainless-steel pot. Add the rest of the ingredients for the peppery pear butter.

5. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Simmer until the fruit becomes tender, about 20 minutes.

6. Puree in a food mill or blender.

7. Remove the pork loin from the oven and let sit for 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with the peppery pear butter.

Serving Size: 6 ounces pork with about 1/2 cup of pear butter
