    This was delicious. My family loved it will definitively make this again. I cut the salt in half and it was perfect.

    i made this recipe with about a 3.5lb half loin. for something that size the cooking time was way off. for something that size. in order to form a sort of crispy crust. i recommend about a half hour at 450°. then turn it down to 350° for about 20 minutes. cover pan with foil. and bake for 10 to 15 minutes longer. take out and let cool for approximately 10 minutes covered. keep in mind all oven temp. consistancy vary. so it may take a longer or shorter amount of time.

    My family really liked this recipe! I love salt however this was a little too salty for my taste use half as much as it calls for.
    Pretty good, but definitely need to cut back on salt.
