Not only was this a beautiful presentation, but it tasted fantastic! The sauce is just out of this world. I doubled up on the sauce, and even the apple jelly called for when brushing the loin, and had no problems with the sauce it creates burning while cooking. I added a bit more olive oil as well, maybe that helped. I did think the 16 cloves of garlic called for would be too much for my 5 pound loin, so I put 10 and regret it. I wish I used all 16 because there was hardly any garlic flavor there (maybe because I prepared the loin the night before and the garlic lost it's flavor?). But over all it was a fancy meal, my guests were very impressed and they all asked for the recipe. Everyone "ooohhh'd and aaaahh'd all night long over this! I served the loin with rice, homemade mashed potatoes, broccoli with garlic, olive oil and raisins, and a spinach-strawberry salad from this site.
