This is a recipe for apricot glazed pork loin roast with cinnamon, nutmeg, and almonds.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 40 minutes

Yield: Serves 8


  • 4 pounds pork loin roast, rolled, boned, tied
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) apricot or pineapple preserves
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, optional, toasted*


Rub roast with salt and pepper. Place on rack in a shallow baking pan. Roast uncovered at 325° for 2 hours.

While roast is cooking combine all ingredients, except almonds, in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes. Add toasted almonds, if using; keep sauce warm.

After 2 hours roasting time, spoon enough hot apricot sauce over roast to glaze. Return roast to oven and baste often with sauce for 30 minutes or until meat is ready to serve. Serve remaining sauce with the roast.
Serves 8.

*To toast nuts, spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in a 350° oven, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes. Or, toast in an ungreased skillet over medium heat, stirring, until golden brown and aromatic.

Great When Entertaining, Member USCGamecocksMan

Love this recipe when we are having company over. Looks upscale and restaurant like but very easy to make. Don't worry about sauce thickening as it will do so after removal from heat. Pork will take about 20 minutes a pound and not the 30 minutes a pound recipe calls for. Tip is to insert thermometer in center of boneless pork loin and remove from oven when it reaches 160 degress. Will be perfect. Every guest we have had with this recipe raves about the taste and sauce.
