Celebrate Prosperity and Progress Savory Pork Loin Recipes are The Taste of Now

Celebrations are often ideal occasions for gathering round with family and friends, serving up mouth-watering recipes featuring pork. Moving forward into new seasons and new ventures, pigs are symbolic to moving ahead as they progress forward in search of bounty (or a little grub), comparatively far more ambitious than the rambling forward and backward hunt of other animals, such as chickens and turkeys. Decades ago, families saved the best cuts of pork to feast upon during such occasions as New Year's Day and other joyous festivities. Today, continuing age-old traditions, we celebrate prosperity and progress with savory pork loin recipes that are "The Taste of Now".

Thank you to the National Pork Board for their sponsorship of this Taste of Now post with a promotional item and nutritional content information and recipes.
