Tender, juicy smoked pork shoulder is wonderful with a simple glaze made with apricot preserves. Use the leftovers for a soup, beans, greens, or a casserole. The roast is first boiled with seasonings, then it's glazed and baked. Serve with potatoes or sweet potatoes, along with your favorite vegetables.

A twist on Christmas Ham...., Member annie3434

I made this for Christmas dinner and it was a real hit - as a side dish I cubed sweet potatoes and placed them around the pork once it was glazed and them put some glaze on those - when I took it out of the oven the pork was so moist and tender and I mashed the sweet potatoes which were so yummy with the glaze mixed in. I will definitly make this again!!!!!
