7 Remove the pan from the oven.
8 Using a spatula, evenly spread the applesauce over the top of the loin.
9 Roast for another 30 minutes, or until the applesauce has become a golden brown glaze and the meat thermometer indicates a temperature of 160° to 165°F.
10 On a heated platter,transfer the roast pork and allow to rest for about 10 minutes for easier carving.
