4 pounds Boston butt roast (or larger if desired)
8 potatoes peeled, and cut in half lengthwise
1 pound baby carrots
1 delicious (or other sweet) apple, cut in eighths


Preheat oven and roasting pan to 350 degrees F.

Salt and pepper one side of the roast. Place seasoned side of roast down on preheated pan. Bake for 20 minutes season top side of roast. Turn roast over and decrease oven heat to 325 degrees F. Roast for about 2 1/2 hours at 325 degrees F (longer time if larger roast). Turn roast over, and add vegetables around base of roast in pan - with potatoes on bottom, covered by the carrots and at least 2 pieces of the apple on top of the roast. Cover the roasting pan. Add hot water to depth of about 1". Bake for additional hour or hour and 15 minutes or until vegetables are done and meat shreds easily. Remember to check water level occasionally - do not want it to go dry.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Very tasty and the apples really put a finishing touch. My family liked it very much and was simple to make.
