  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Trim fat from pork. Place pork in 13x9-inch glass baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 2
    In 10-inch skillet, heat preserves, sherry, rosemary and garlic over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened. If necessary, mash apricot pieces with fork into small pieces. Spoon 1/4 cup apricot mixture onto pork (reserve remaining apricot mixture). Insert meat thermometer so tip is in center of thickest part of pork.
  • 3
    Bake uncovered 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes or until thermometer reads 155°F. Cover pork with foil; let stand 15 to 20 minutes or until thermometer reads 160°F. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5°F, and pork will be easier to carve.) Cut pork into slices. Heat remaining apricot mixture; serve with pork.

Expert Tips

  • If you have fresh rosemary, chop about 1 tablespoon of the leaves for the sauce. Arrange some of the rosemary sprigs, along with fresh or dried apricots, around the roast when serving.
  • When checking the doneness of the roast, remove it from the oven when the thermometer reads 5°F less than the desired temperature. The roast will continue to cook as it stands, covered, before being sliced.
  • Seasoned rice pilaf, buttered carrots and lettuce wedges with blue cheese dressing complement the rich flavors of this roast.
