Kids in the Kitchen Link Up Week 14
A few months ago my neighbor and my family “split” a pig. There is a local farmer who raises pigs and we wanted to get the highest quality of meat, and knowing how the pig was raised and fed was a big plus. Can I just tell you, BIG difference. I do not eat pork, nor can I, but I have been able to eat the meat from this pig. It has to be due to its diet and no hormones or additives added.
Today I will be sharing Roasted Rosemary Pork Shoulder with Cinnamon Apples.
How to Make Roasted Rosemary Pork
- 3 Tbs. olive oil
- 3 Tbs. chopped garlic
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 drop Young Living Rosemary Essential Oil
- Fresh rosemary sprigs
- Fresh oregano leaves (chopped)
- 1 (4 pound) pork shoulder
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, rosemary essential oil, and fresh herbs. Using a pastry brush, spread the mixture all over the pork shoulder. Cook for 20 minutes, and then reduce the heat to 325 degrees F. Continue to cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the shoulder reads 185 degrees F, about 4 hours. Remove the pork from the oven and let stand until cool enough to handle, about 30 minutes. (recipe is adapted from foodnetwork.com)
How to Make Cinnamon Apples
6-8 Organic apples
1/4 cup Organic butter (we use non-dairy version)
1 drop of Young Living Cinnamon Bark essential oil
1 Tbs. ground cinnamon
1/4-1/2 cup Sucanat sugar
Peel the apples and then slice them. Add the apples to a pan. Then randomly place the butter along the apples, as well as the cinnamon and sucanat. Lastly add a drop of cinnamon essential oil. Cook on the stove on low heat. Stir gently, periodically.
To compliment the dish, add your favorite steamed organic vegetable and fresh organic blueberries or strawberries.
