Helpful Hints

* This recipe shines brightest when you use actual 100% cranberry juice, but it's perfectly tasty with plain old cranberry cocktail too. If you do use pure unsweetened cranberry juice, I recommend adding 1 cup honey along with the zest to offset the overpowering sourness of unadulterated cranberry.

This sounds kind of interesting. Can it be made with pork shoulder or loin? I love pork combined with cranberry and orange. Would you change the seasonings? Any serving suggestions for sides?
