Full Answer

To make a sweet-and-spicy marinade, combine 1/4 cup honey, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon of cumin, 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, 2 tablespoons of oil, salt and pepper. Pour the marinade into a gallon-sized resealable bag, and allow the pork to marinate for at least one hour before cooking.

To make peach marinade, combine 1/2 cup each of peach preserves and olive oil, 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard, salt and pepper, and allow the pork to marinate in the mixture for two to four hours before cooking.

To make an herb-based marinade, combine 1/2 cup of olive oil; 1/2 cup of white wine or chicken broth; 1/4 cup fresh rosemary; 2 tablespoons of fresh, chopped sage leaves; 2 tablespoons of fresh, chopped thyme and 2 teaspoons of chopped garlic. When using dried herbs to make a marinade, reduce the amount of the herbs used to one-third of the amount of fresh herbs in the recipe.
