Add pork and vegetables to roasting pan. Cook at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the pork is seared on top.
  • Mix 4 cups Michigan apple cider, 4 oz. Dijon mustard, and 1 cup BLiS bourbon maple syrup. Add to pan when pork is seared. Reduce heat to 250 degrees and cover the roasting pan. Let the roast cook for about 3.5-4 hours. Remove from oven and add another 4 cups of cider. Return to the oven at 250 degrees until pork is falling off the bone. Remove cover and drizzle pork with remaining bourbon syrup. Cook an additional 20-30 minutes
  • Strain the liquid from roasting pan and refrigerate. Once chilled, remove fat from the top of the liquid. Bring to a boil, slightly reduce the liquid, and mount with one stick of butter. Drizzle liquid over pork, and enjoy!
