Top-Notch Tailgating With Blackberry Patch

We love the all-natural, small-batch salsas, spreads, and syrups from Blackberry Patch of Thomasville. We serve up the salsa with chips, the spreads with cream cheese and crackers (or biscuits! or cornbread!), and the syrups on everything from breakfast (pancakes, oatmeal, yogurt and granola…) to dessert (ice cream, pound cake…the possibilities are endless!).

But with football season just a few days away, we thought we’d share a few Blackberry Patch recipes sure to take your tailgate table or game day get-together up a notch:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk together the ingredients in a medium bowl. Add the pork and turn to coat. Put pork in a roasting pan and cook 25 minutes or until an instant read thermometer registers 145 degrees in the thickest part of the pork. Cover the pork with foil and let it rest for 10 minutes.
