|Balsamic vinegar||¼ cup|
|Brown sugar||2 tablespoons|
|Dried cherries (or other dried fruit)||¼ cup|
|Chopped dried apricots (or other dried fruit)||¼ cup|

|Juice of 1 orange|
|Ground cinnamon||¼ teaspoon|
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Place pork in a roasting pan, rub with salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. Roast about 35-45 minutes, until meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the tenderloin registers 160°F. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.

Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to low and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, about 10-15 minutes, until thick. Keep the mixture warm by covering it until time to serve.
