Happy day my friends. I am bringing you a delicious recipe for Pork with Fig Preserves and Roasted Garlic. It’s one of those meals that is perfect for company, but easy enough for just an every day meal for your family.
Last year, my canning forays had me putting up several jars of Fig Preserves. With Fig Season here again, I figured I ought to use up the last remaining jar of this canned goodness. I love this jam smeared on a chunk of good Manchego, Gouda or Gruyere. But in this case I was planning on using it to elevate a humble pork loin to Sunday Dinner greatness. I roasted a head of garlic and pureed it with the fig preserves, thyme and balsamic vinegar to create the perfect coating for the pork loin and it was just as good as I hoped! The preserves helped the coating adhere to the meat during roasting and the port wine syrup drizzled over the whole shebang was perfection.
This Pork with Fig Preserves and Roasted Garlic was an easy meal to prepare, with results that look and taste like you spent much more time than you did. Served with shaved, sauteed brussel sprouts and roasted potatoes, it’s the perfect dish for a special meal.
