Cranberry Pork Roast

This pork roast recipe is truly scrumptious. Everyone will rave as the roast will come out tender and juicy every time.  With a hint of clove, you can make a wonderful gravy from the sauce, too.

Serve with Paul's mashed potatoes, a side of applesauce and fresh snap peas with drop biscuits.  Enjoy!
