Pork Shoulder with Salt & Vinegar Brine

What is better than roast for Sunday dinner? Salt and Vinegar roast pork, what else? Our salt and vinegar brine cuts down the fattiness of the tender pork shoulder. The pork is gently roasted over sweet autumnal grapes for a kick of sweetness and flavor. Best served with mash and veggies.
