Pork & Applesauce

Happy Saturday,


Tasha here! Today I have another recipe for you! It is so chilly today! I thought a slow cooker meal would be perfect! I love being able to start a meal and then go about all my daily errands! It is so convenient! Our recipe calls for a crock pot that can hold at least 4 quarts. We want to make sure to give the pork enough room to soak up our delicious marinade.


Today’s recipe is Pork Loin cooked in Holmes MouthWatering Applesauce. I can imagine the smells already! I was thinking of pairing the pork with Asian slaw and roasted red potatoes! Remember if you do not have Holmes MouthWatering stocked up in your fridge, you can purchase a jar at your local Marcs or buy a jar from our online store!
