Ingredients:  
2 (5 pound) pork loin roasts, rib bones attached, back bone (chine) removed
Small bunch sage, leaves chopped
Small bunch thyme, leaves chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 (12-ounce) bottle hard cider
1 cup chicken broth
1 lemon, juiced optional

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Place the pork roast in a roasting pan with the ribs facing up, braced against each other. Add sage and thyme to olive oil. Brush the pork roasts with oil mixture and season with a generous amount of salt and pepper. Roast the pork loin for 2 1/2 hours, until the skin is crackled. Remove the pork roast to a cutting board and let it rest for 15 minutes before carving. Pour out some of the excess fat from the roasting pan and put it on the stove over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the flour into the hot pan juices, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon or whisk to prevent lumps. Cook and stir the roux until its light brown. Add the cider and continue to stir to incorporate. Pour in the chicken broth; boil and stir for 5 minutes until the sauce is thick. Check for seasoning - add lemon juice if necessary. Serve the cider gravy with the pork roast. Serves 8.
