Garlic Apple Pork Roast Debuts at the Bennett House

Amy found this yummy recipe on the internet and highly recommends it, so we're giving it a try at our house. Right away I found that I'm not going to be able to do it exactly the same way. Even the smaller roasts don't fit into my slow cooker. So I'm cooking it in the oven. Well, tomorrow I'm cooking it in the oven. At least that is my plan, I sometimes have difficulty with getting things INTO the oven, lol.
This is one of the smaller frozen pork baron roasts we wrapped this weekend. They are all so big! It is all prepped and ready for cooking.
Amy said it was scrumdillyumptious and just fell off the bone. "The recipe calls for 12oz of Apple Jelly, minced garlic and 1/2 cup of water. I mixed this all together in a bowl and poured it on tip of the roast. I added some salt and pepper on the top. I also placed some whole cloves in the roast. I cooked it for 8+ hours in my crock pot."
I've added some extra water so I don't run into a problem if I'm gone too long. I used a 1/4 tsp of ground clove, since I don't have whole cloves. I put the roast with the apple mixture and pepper and garlic salt on top of the roast. I put it in the fridge still frozen. In the morning I will put it in the oven and have it start cooking a couple hours after I leave.
I am not exactly sure what temperature to cook this at so I'm thinking 225 for 8 plus hours??? I hope it works out. Any timely suggestions are appreciated!!

Sounds yummy! You aren't worried about the vapors? ;) LOL
I cooked a boneless pork roast in the oven at 275 for 8ish hours last month and it was fall apart tender.
225 if you think it might be more than 8 hours sounds pretty good.
Can't wait to hear how it turns out.

Yes, I am worried about the vapors. Hoping that slow cooking + apple jelly + garlic will cover them up.
The pork chops I had were pretty good...

I am sorry that I did not explain very well on my blog. I put whole garlic cloves. I am sure the cloves you put on will still be delicious.

Lol, Dennis said that he understood perfectly that you meant garlic cloves. The other kind of clove didn't even occur to him!

The big plunge...
