My G-grandma used to make this:
Pork Loin with Apples, Cider and Calvados
One 4 1/2-pound pork loin roast
1 tablespoon flour
Salt, freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons finely chopped rosemary
4 tablespoon butter
1/2cup hard cider
3 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 stalks rosemary (optional)
5 baking apples, cored, quartered
1/4 cup Calvados [apple brandy]
Preheat oven to 160°C. Tie pork loin every 2 inches with kitchen twine so that it holds together in a "round" shape.
In a small bowl mix together flour, salt, pepper and chopped rosemary.
Rub the flour mixture all over the pork loin coating evenly and well.
Heat 2 tablespoons butter in large heavy skillet and seat meat over high
heat, turning often, until brown on all sides. Transfer with pan juice to a
large baking pan. Scatter onions and garlic around the roast. Cut up remaining butter and distribute evenly atop onions. Add rosemary stalks
to pan. Cover with foil and place in oven. Cook 45 minutes, then add
apples and hard cider to pan. Baste everything with pan juices. Re-cover
and cook 30 minutes. Raise oven temperature to 200°C., remove
foil, baste and cook 15 minutes.
Place roast on cutting board, remove string and allow to rest 10 minutes. Transfer apples and onions to platter.
On top of stove, reduce the pan juices by half. Warm the Calvados, add to pan juices and flame. Simmer while slicing meat. Serves 8.

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.
