Pork Loin with Apple Butter Sauce

This pork loin with Apple Butter sauce is my new favourite recipe.  I'm happy to say completely made up as I went along, but I've been able to replicate it several times, so I thought it was time to write it all down.

It's a little on the sweet side, and if you prefer yours less sweet, reduce the amount of apple butter, or use unsweetened applesauce as a substitute.

The pork turns out lovely and tender and the sauce is extremely yummy, and I hope it becomes one of your favourites as well.  Enjoy!
