Sara, Dan and Mitchel of Fairway cook up an Easter feast of pork loin, potatoes and green beans.

Holiday Pork Loin
Serves 4-5

Ingredients
1 boneless pork loin (2-2 1/2 lbs), butterflied
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups dried figs, halved
1 1/2 cups dried pitted prunes, halved
1 1/2 cups dried apricots
1 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
10 leaves rosemary, chopped
salt to taste
pepper to taste
kitchen twine

Cooking Instructions
Add 2 cups water to a pot and place on stove over a medium heat. Add
dried fruit and heat for 20 minutes, mixing every few minutes. After 10
minutes, add the red wine vinegar. When the fruits are done they will
have started to blend together and become a compote. Add the honey and
mix. Take the compote out of the pot and place in a bowl. Add the
rosemary and salt and pepper to taste and mix.

Season the inside of the pork loin with salt and pepper to taste and
generously stuff the loin with the compote. Tie well. Add the olive
oil to a heavy pan and place on stove over a medium heat. Brown the
pork well for 2 minutes on each side. Place the pan in a preheated 400
degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Take out of the oven and let sit for
10-15 minutes. Slice and serve with fruit compote on the side.

through. Take out of the pot and drain well. Cut each potato in half
and place in a bowl. Add parsley and butter, mix and serve immediately.
