Roast Pork

Yield: 8 servings

  • ¼ cup allspice berries
  • 1½ inch piece of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 6 scallions, including green tops, sliced
  • 1 Scotch Bonnet-type chili
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dark Jamaica rum
  • 1 (4 pound) boned pork loin

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Place the berries on a pie tin and roast for 10 minutes. Pulverize them in a spice mill with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Place the spice mixture in a food processor, fitted with a metal blade. Add the scallions and chile. Season with salt and pepper. Process until a paste is formed. Add the rum and mix well. Rub the mixture all over the pork loin. Cover and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour at room temperature. Increase the oven temperature to 400° F. Remove the meat and place in a roasting pan, and roast for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350° F and continue to roast for 1½ hours, basting every 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with the Island Beans and Fried Plantains
