FIG SWEET ONION + ROSEMARY GLAZED PORK ROAST RECIPE
FIG SWEET ONION + ROSEMARY GLAZED PORK ROAST
1 pork shoulder (4-5 lbs), bone-in
6qt ice water
½ cup pickling salt
½ jar Sallie’s Greatest Fig Sweet Onion +Rosemary Jam
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup olive oil (this might be changed in final recipe)
For the Brine: Add the salt to the ice water and whisk until completely dissolved. Place pork roast in a large container or zip bag and pour over brine. Place in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours.
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Drain roast, and Place on a baking rack in an ovenproof deep-wall (2.5-3 inch) pan. Bake for 3.5 hours, rotating 180 degrees after 2 hours. Remove from oven—meat should be VERY tender, and the bone should be easy to pull out. Raise oven temperature to 375 degrees.
For the Glaze: Mix together the Fig Sweet Onion + Rosemary Jam, apple cider vinegar, olive oil and. Liberally glaze the outside of the roast, reserving half of the glaze to use as a finishing sauce. Return to the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until glaze has thickened.
Serve as the meat in a main course, or use to make unique BBQ sandwiches. Can add rustic cold slaw. Or, better yet, make a delicious Fig Sweet Onion + Rosemary Panini! Start by using a hearty whole wheat/grain bread, and spread some Fig Sweet Onion + Rosemary Jam on it. Add some pulled pork along with some gouda or provolone cheese, butter the outside of the bread and grill!
Fig Sweet Onion + Rosemary can also be used as a finishing sauce over pork ribs. Delicious!
NOTE: The Peach Pepper + Ginger Jam also works great with this recipe.
Both of these are available as part of our Meat Me For Dinner Jam Trio.
