5 tbsp butter

1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped

1 small onion, chopped

1 celery stalk, diced

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 1/2 cups water

5 cups dry bread crumbs

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1 (3 pound) boneless rolled pork loin roast


1. Preheat oven to 325° F (165° C).

2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the apple, onion, celery and walnuts. Cook until vegetables are tender (about 5 minutes). Mix in applesauce, water and breadcrumbs. Cook until the breadcrumbs have absorbed the liquid. Season with cinnamon, salt, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger.

3. Unroll the pork roast, and place in a baking dish. Spoon the stuffing mixture over the roast. Arrange any excess stuffing around the roast. Roll the roast so that the fatty side is on top, and tie with kitchen twine.

4. Bake 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven to an internal temperature of 160° F (70° C).
