Ingredients:  
2 1/4 lb. boned and rolled pork loin
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tbsp. Dijon Mustard
4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and each cut into 8 wedges and tossed with lemon juice
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. canola or other neutral oil
1/2 cup heavy cream, optional
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard, optional

Directions:
Directions:
Place rack on second level from bottom of oven. Heat oven to 500.

Place loin in a 12x14x2 roasting pan. Rub salt all over loin. Smear mustard over top of loin. Roast for 20 minutes. Move the loin around with a wooden spatula so it won't stick. Roast for 15 minutes more. Add the apples coated with lemon juice and oil, and collected juices. Spread out around the loin. Roast 10 minutes. Turn apples gently, as they are soft. Roast 10 minutes more. In total, the loin should roast for 50 minutes or until meat reaches an internal temp of 140. The meat might still be slightly pink, but this is fine. Don't overcook the roast, or it will be dry. The apples will be dark brown and will have absorbed all the good juices.

Remove the loin to a platter. Nip off the strings. If using cream and mustard, combine and stir carefully into apples. Let meat rest 10-15 minutes before slicing. Carefully remove apples with a metal spatula and place around roast. Deglaze the pan just to clean it, as all the good bits are in the apples!

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
An easy dish with a lot to offer! The apple wedges in this recipe are a perfect match for the pork. Remember that if you are adding the optional ingredients, which we recommend you do, don't stir. Mix the mustard with the cream; pour over the apples, and turn the apples from the bottom in the cream. Just delicious!
