I make an amazing rack of pork. I just came up with and made this recipe this Christmas, and it will now be my Christmas Eve dinner from now on. You can use any rub recipe that you like, but this is the one that I use. The pork is tender, juicy and delicious!

French-cut rack 7 bones

Rub:
5 nice-sized cloves of garlic
2 - 3 shallots
Rosemary (fresh. lots)
sage (fresh)
1 - 1 1/2 T. cumin
1 - 1 1/2 T. tumeric (I use it for anti-inflammatory reasons, can be left out)
2 - 3 T. dijon mustard
1/4 c. EVOO (as necessary)
Kosher salt
pepper

Finely chop garlic and shallots, then add ~ 1 - 1 1/2 t. kosher salt to the garlic and shallots and continue to chop finely (almost to a paste)
Finely chop rosemary and sage and add to the "paste". Add cumin and tumeric to the mixture and mix to well incorporated. In a small bowl, add mustard and oil; whisk til well mixed, and then add to the spice mixture. Rub all over rack. Rub exposed bones with oil. Refrigerate at least 12 hours.

Pull rack out 2 hrs. prior to cooking. Let stand at room temp. Once rack is at room temp., pre-heat oven to 350 and heat 2 - 3 T EVOO in a hot dutch oven. Sear rack on all sides (about 5 mins each side). Once seared, remove pork from pan and place on a plate. (If you are making stuffing, you can sautee any veggies you want in the stuffing at this point). Place a rack in the dutch oven, and then place the pork on rack fat side up. Place in oven 18 mins / lb. Once cooked, transfer the pork to a plate and cover with aluminum foil for at least 30 mins. Carve when ready...YYUUUMMMM!

It might seem a little intensive, but well worth it!

We never repent of having eaten too little.

If your not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

Cranberry Jellp Mold

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup boiling water
6 oz package raspberry jello
1 c cold water
2 Tblsp lemon juice
3 oz cream cheese, diced small (helps to cut it up then freeze it till hard then it stays in chunks)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup small dice celery

Combine 1 c water, cranberrys, and sugr in saucepan. Bring to boil, remove from heat, cover and let cool for 5 mins.
Combine boiling water and jello. stir till jello is dissolved. Add 1 cup cold water, and the cranberry mixture, and lemon juice. Chill till thickened..not set.
Fold in Cream cheese, nuts and celery, put in mold or leave in bowl. Chill till set.

To make more calorie freindly..use diet jello, lite or low fat cream cheese. the Walnuts and celery are good for you. you could also use a diet sweetener in the cranberrys...i've never tried that, though. I have used the sugar free jello and nonfat cream cheese though and its still great!!
Hope you try it..ENJOY!!
