Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425º F. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the sweet potatoes, pears, oil, thyme, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Roast for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, wrap the pork in the prosciutto, slightly overlapping the slices to cover the pork completely.
  3. Push the vegetables to the edges of the baking sheet, place the pork in the center, and drizzle the pork with the honey. Roast until the pork is cooked through and the sweet potatoes and pears are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Let the pork rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with the sweet potatoes and pears.

Quick Tip

Pears
Pears are delicious when roasted, but ripe ones are too delicate to stand up to prolonged heat. For this recipe, firm, slightly underripe fruit works best.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
