Cranberry & Feta Stuffed Pork with Cranberry Reduction
Fresh Origins Micro Antioxidants Mix
2-3 lb Pork Roast
2 packages of Dried Cranberries
3 Cups of Red Wine
1 package of Feta
1 can of Chicken Stock
2 cups of Sugar
For the Pork:
Cut pork roast down the center (not all the way through) to make it into a thinner flat piece. Add 1 package of cranberries and feta to the center of the meat (like you are making a burrito). Then take the two side ends and bring them together. Tie up the whole roast with 4 pieces of twine. Season with salt and pepper. Add olive oil and butter to the top. Add chicken stock to the bottom of the baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 to get the top crisp. Then for an additional 45 minutes at 350 or longer depending on your oven.
For the Cranberry Reduction:
In a small saucepan, add 1 package of cranberries, butter, olive oil, sugar, red wine, salt and cinnamon. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the consistency is thick and the wine is reduced.
When pork is done, slice it and add the cranberry reduction on top. Serve with a side dish of your choice and garnish with Fresh Origins Micro Antioxidants Mix!
Antioxidant Berry Tart
Fresh Origins Antioxidants Mix
Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
Small Frozen Tart Crust
Put whole blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and sliced strawberries into a bowl, add 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier and granulated sugar, stirring to coat every berry. In a separate bowl, add berries and 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier and mash mixture. Combine mashed mixture with whole berry mixture. Place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes to an hour to let berries macerate. Mix every 20 minutes or so and add more sugar. You’ll know they are ready when a thick syrup begins to form.
While waiting, combine mascarpone with Grand Marnier and Sugar and set in refrigerator.
When the berries are almost done, crack an egg and separate the yolk and the whites. Brush the edges of the crust with the egg yolk. (This will give the edges a nice golden brown color when baked). Bake tart crust for 10-12 minutes at a temperature of 450.
When crust is done, let cool for 15 minutes.
While waiting, combine mascarpone mixture with berry mixture.
When crust is room temperature, remove it from its outer baking shell. Then plate crust and fill the center with the mascarpone and berry mixture. Add fresh berries to plate, surrounding tart. Garnish tart with fresh berries and Fresh Origins Micro Antioxidants Mix.
