Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Oil a large roasting pan. Finely chop the garlic, rosemary, sage and juniper berries together. Stir the herb mixture with the salt and pepper. With a large, sharp knife, cut the meat lengthwise down the center. Leave it attached on one side. Open the meat like a book an spread 2/3 of the spice mixture over the meat. Close the meat and tie it with a string at 2-inch intervals. Rub the rest of the spice mixture over the outside, then put the meat in the pan. Drizzle with olive oil.

Roast the pork for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 300 degrees and roast for 1 more hour. Remove the roast to a serving platter and cover with foil. Let rest for 10 minutes. Add wine to the pan and put it over medium heat on top of the stove. Cook until juices are reduced. Slice the pork and spoon on the pan juices. Serve.

  • Hi BTolle,
    You can either pick them fresh or purchase them. I found some available on Amazon. If you'd like a substitute, you can use 1 tsp. gin for every two berries, or you can use fresh rosemary sprigs instead. Happy cooking!
