Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Mix all spices together, rub the pork roast (wear latex type gloves so that the turmeric doesn’t stain your hands!) and let it sit in fridge (cover with wrap or a towel) for hour and a half (or overnight).

Step 2

Set oven to 350°.

Sauté cranberries, figs, and onions in olive oil over medium heat with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and set aside.

Step 3

Toss carrots and potatoes in a drizzle of olive oil, maple syrup, and a smattering of salt and pepper then scatter on parchment lined baking sheet. Place the rubbed roast in center and scatter cranberries, figs, and onions over everything.

Roast 1 ½ – 2 hrs until pork reaches internal temperature of 145° – 150°.

Let the roast rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Serve to warm plates and savor the warm and mildly spicy flavors of this delightfully easy meal.
