Ingredients

Country Ham Jus:
Pawpaw Relish:

Directions

To marinate the pork roast, combine maple syrup, molasses, bourbon, chili sauce, and chili paste in a shallow dish and mix well. Brush the roast all over with the marinade and refrigerate it 8 hours or longer.

Preheat 1 side of a grill to high heat.

To cook, sear the roast all over on a hot grill. Once it browns, move the meat to a cooler spot. Lower the heat and continue to cook, covered, at a lower temperature, until it is done, about 11/2 to 2 hours, depending on its size -- the meat should register 150 to 155 degrees F in its thickest part.

To serve, reheat the Country Ham Jus and divide it among serving plates. Place pork on plates and add a generous spoonful of Pawpaw Relish.

Country Ham Jus:

For the country ham jus, combine the ham bones, 4 cups water, onion, celery, carrot, thyme, bay leaf, and pepper in a large stockpot. Simmer, uncovered, for 3 hours, or until liquid is reduced to 1 cup. Strain out the solids. Combine with demi-glace in pot and cook until reduced to 1 1/2 cups. Add salt, to taste. Refrigerate.

Pawpaw Relish:

Mix all the ingredients together.

Cook's Note

*To "French" the rib bones means to cut out the material between the bones. Your meat cutter should know how to cut the roast and should do it for you on request. ** Find pawpaw puree at www.integrationacres.com, or substitute pureed papaya
