Apple Walnut Stuffed Pork Roast

Photo of Apple Walnut Stuffed Pork Roast by Chris Hatin

5 tablespoons butter
1 apple – peeled, cored, and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 celery stalk, diced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 cups water
5 cups coarse dry breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Spice Islands Ground Ginger 1.9 Oz

Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1 (3 pound) boneless rolled pork loin roast
Pork Loin Boneless Whole Pork Tenderloin 1 Lb



Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the apple, onion, celery, and walnuts, and cook 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Mix in the applesauce, water, and breadcrumbs. Cook and stir until the breadcrumbs have absorbed the liquid. Season with cinnamon, kosher salt, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger.
Unroll the pork roast, and place in a baking dish. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon the stuffing mixture over the roast. Arrange any excess stuffing around the roast. Roll the roast so that the fatty side is on top, and tie with kitchen twine.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).



Hello, y’ll



I hope everyone is doing okay today, thus far!

I was without power for over 12 hours this past Sunday, and without WiFi until an hour ago. It has been a real eye opener.

I have two toddlers in my household and four adults, it was interesting coming up with things to do for everyone. I had over 15 inches of snow here.  It started Saturday at midnight. I live in the foothills and it was a big event getting that much snow. Thankfully no ice. But as everyone knows, when it starts to melt , if temperatures fall below freezing it will  re freeze making icy roads. So we were pretty much trapped for a while.

I did not get to post anything, if I had not scheduled something previously, I would have had nothing to post. I had no WiFi so checking messages was far and few in between.

I just wanted to explain to those of you who were curious where I had been.


I am trying to catch up on things, so sorry for a delayed response to the messages, comments, etc.

So see you guys on this side of the RAINBOW!

When by MwsR (me)
When you feel down and out,

Make your soul jump up and about.

Do something kind for someone or something

It will surely make you sing.

Life is rewarding when we start to shine

Give to less fortunate be meek and kind.

If you can’t spread a rainbow

At least be the pot of gold, you know.

For whoever finds you will find a treasure

And whoever knows you, it will be a pleasure.

The world has a way of putting clouds of gray in a person’s day

Try and be the one who can lessen that in a small way.

When you are feeling down and out,

Take care of others and you will eventually stop your pout.
