A great way to use Jam

So, do you ever find you have random jars of jams and jelly in your house?
You buy a new one cause it's some exotic flavor and it looks great?
It comes in a gift basket?

And before you know it WHAM you have a shelf of Jam.

Well we're that household.

So tonight I had a pork roast out to make for supper and was browsing for some inspiration to make a glaze or something for it and came across an idea from myrecipes.com that I tweaked and it came out so good.

One of the best pork roasts we've had in a LONG time!

Jam Glazed Pork Roast

1 pork roast
2 cloves of garlic minced
3 T soy Sauce
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup OJ
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup jam of choice - we used Boysenberry

Place roast on rack in roasting pan. Set oven to 325. Season pork with salt and pepper. In a bowl combine the jam, garlic, soy sauce and OJ and stir to combine. Pour half over the roast and use the other half to baste as you cook.

Cook for about an hour and a half to 2 hours or until it reaches 160-165 degrees. We cooked ours per the recipe from myrecipes.com to 155 and it was NOT done. And in an hour and a half at 325 it was no where near done as well. So play around to what is best for your oven.

This was sweet, sticky, tender and fabulous!
