Pomegranate Glazed Pork Roast


3/4 cup pomegranate molasses
3 tablespoons orange blossom honey
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
One 5 1/2-pound pork rib roast, at room temperature
2 tablespoons olive oil
coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Garnish with pomegranates, oranges and sprigs of rosemary


Mix the molasses, honey, garlic, dry mustard and rosemary to make a glaze. Rub the pork with the olive oil , season with sea salt and pepper, and roast in a 500° oven for 25 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375° and roast for 20 minutes. Brush the roast with the glaze and cook for 25 minutes or until the center reaches 155°; brush with glaze again 10 minutes before it's done. Let the roast stand for 15 minutes, then carve and serve with the pan juices mixed with the remaining glaze.
