Crown Roast of Pork with Fruit Stuffing
Serves 8 to 12
Total preparation time: 3 hr.
Bring the crown roast to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Meanwhile, combine the flour with the salt and pepper and rub it over the outer fat of the crown.
Fry the bacon until crisp, reserving the bacon fat. Crumble the bacon and recombine it with the bacon fat. Brush the outside bone with a mixture of crumbled bacon and fat.
Fill the center of the crown with Fruit Stuffing and place a bit of aluminum foil on each of the bone tips so that they will not burn. Roast for half an hour in an open pan.
Reduce heat to 325°F and continue roasting for about 2 1/2 hours. You should allow about 25 minutes per pound for roasting. When roast is done, remove the foil from the bone ends and add frills if you desire.
