  1. Heat oven to 375ºF. Soak fruit in 1 cup boiling water for 15 minutes. You’ll need a small roasting pan and kitchen string.

  2. Make a long cut down center of pork, not all the way through. Open like a book. Mix cumin, salt and pepper; sprinkle 1⁄2 tsp over cut surface.

  3. Drain fruit; save liquid. Arrange fruit over one side of pork. Fold over other side to enclose filling. Tie in several places with kitchen string. Rub meat with rest of cumin mixture; place in pan.

  4. Roast 50 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted in center registers 160ºF. Remove to cutting board; let rest 10 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, add fruit liquid to pan and stir over high heat to dissolve browned bits on bottom. Simmer 4 minutes to reduce slightly. Serve with pork.
