I'm a novice cook at best and this was a fabulous roast and very easy to make!! I tweaked it ever so slightly. I had a 2 3/4 lb roast. I browned the roast on ALL sides first in a enamel covered cast iron dutch oven. Once it was browned, I removed the roast and deglazed the pan with about 1/2 cup of apple juice. I covered the pot and placed it in the oven on 275 degrees for 1 1/2 hours, basting every half hour. Also, I only used about half the amount of fruit. My four year old who only eats chicken fingers loved this roast. She even asked for seconds!! My husband, who is also a picky eater, asks me to make this roast. For him to ask for something speaks volumes about this recipe.
