Roast Pork with Apples, Cabbage, and Turnips

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Cindy Barr

Showcasing the best of fall's flavors, this hearty dish combines tart apples with smoky bacon, pungent cabbage, and sweet maple syrup. The apples and vegetables cook along with the pork so the flavors are harmonious. Full-flavored, tart apples, such as Granny Smith, Jonagold, Albemarle (Newtown) Pippin, Roxbury Russet, or Winesap, provide the best flavor.

Yield: 10 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork and about 1/2 cup apple mixture)
