I brined the roast in salt water and molasses for a few hours before roasting at 300ºF till the thermometer said it was done. I had laid bay leaves and sprinkled thyme and a sprig of rosemary on the roast going in.
The vegetables were steamed and finished in olive oil with a little salt. Mashed potatoes with salt, butter and milk. The pear sauce Fern made a few years back, it's dreamy with the pork.
It looks pedestrian but it's packed with flavour.
