- Preheat oven to 400˚F.
- In a small bowl, whisk together water, vinegar, and honey.
- Place apricots and raisins in a small to medium baking dish and then add vinegar mixture. Bake for about 20 minutes. Use a slotted spoon and transfer the apricots and raisins to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm. Pour the balsamic liquid into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until liquid is reduced to about 1/3 cup. Pour liquid over apricots and cover to keep warm.

Transfer pork to the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork registers 160˚ F. Remove and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with the apricots and balsamic sauce.
