Best Recipe for a Pork Roast

I have made this recipe many times. I first saw this recipe in our local New England paper almost 20 years ago. The pork comes out very moist with incrediable flavor. It is not just for the holidays.

I made this recipe for a buffet dinner and it looked so festive that I intend to make it for our New Years Day Party! It was a hit with everyone - especially the guys!
