Berkshire pork is a little different to regular pork. It’s a little darker in color, it has more marbling, and is surprisingly very juicy. Berkshire pork originates from Berkshire in the UK. The Berkshire pig was specifically bred for the King of England, thus referred to as heritage breed pork.

As soon as you take your first bite of Berkshire pork, you will notice a distinct richness that begs you to try another piece, and another. 

Applying fresh herbs and spices makes Berkshire pork taste even better. This loin roast is coated with EVOO, fresh rosemary, parsley and garlic, mixed with allspice, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper. These flavors are darling. They form a seal on top of the thin layer of fat which helps the flavors penetrate the meat. It’s so good!

You can buy a loin roast tied or untied. A loin roast is best tied before cooking to keep it's shape. I bought an untied cut, so that I could cut any thick pieces of fat, and tied it up myself after applying marinade. If you want to avoid fiddling with chef's twine, it is fine to buy your cut of meat tied.
