Jam Stuffed Roast

Favorite Seasonings such as Salt, Pepper, Granulated Garlic
Diced Onion, Fresh herbs as desired
Your favorite Appalachian Kitchen Jam

1)  Slit roast lengthwise creating a pocket in the top of the roast.  
Be careful not to cut through to the ends of the roast or through
the bottom of the roast.
2)  Season the outside and the slit opening with your favorite
spices.  Fill the slit opening with your favorite Appalachian
Kitchen jam.  You can also place some fresh herbs and onions in
the bottom of the slit prior to adding the jam.
3)  Typically a lighter jam such as peach or apricot is better for
pork and blueberry or blackberry is better for red meat.
4)  Bake at a slightly lower temperature and for a little longer
than you normally would.  Because you have used one of
Appalachian Kitchens' wine fortified products, use a matching
wine flavor for marinating and deglazing.
