  1. Mash cranberry sauce with a fork or a potato masher. Stir in sugar, cranberry juice, mustard, and cloves.
  2. Place pork roast in a large, roasting pan. Pour cranberry sauce mixture over the roast.
  3. Cook at 275 degree F (135 degrees C) for 6 to 8 hours, or until meat is tender. Remove roast, and keep warm.
  4. With a metal spoon, skim the fat from the liquid in the roasting pan. Pour 2 cups of the remaining roasting liquid (add water to fill out the measure if necessary) into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Blend cornstarch and cold water to make a paste; stir gradually into boiling liquid. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Add salt to taste. Serve with the roast.

I made this for 50 people at our church. It got rave reviews. I used 3 whole boneless pork loins. The only thing I changed was to brine the roasts in salt, brown sugar, garlic and rosemary for 3...

This is wonderful! I cook for the Sr. Center in my town and today, I made this roast with cranberry glaze and I was told it was the best meal they have ever had at the center. Thank you for the ...

Oh so delicious! I've used pork ribs and even pork chops in the slow cooker with excellent results! This one is a keeper. Thanks!

This was fabulous! I made one change as I forgot to buy cranberry juice, so used fresh orange juice instead. Everyone raved about how tender the pork was. Thanks.

I make this in the slow cooker and it's a hit everytime!!

I have used this recipe for years now it's so good everytime. But I use the crockpot for this, everything the same except halve the ingredients and use a 2 lb rolled pork loin roast.
