New England Pork Tenderloin

Don't let how disgusting this meat looks uncooked scare you away. The end result is appealing and appetizing. This recipe is a favorite from my mom, and if Mom makes it, it's good!

1 lb pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/4 c apple jelly
2 T lemon juice
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
2 tart red cooking apples, unpeeled, cored and thinly sliced

Heat oven to 375. In a small bowl, combine apple jelly, lemon juice and pumpkin pie spice; blend well. Place roast in a greased pan. Brush with half of jelly mixture. Roast for 20 - 30 minutes. Let stand 5 - 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place apple slices on a broiling pan; brush with remaining mixture. Broil 5 - 6" from the heat for about 5 minutes.

I usually double the recipe (which doubles the cooking time).
