How to make it
- In large, deep skillet(I used cast iron) saute celery and onion in butter until soft.
- Add garlic and mushrooms and cook about 5 minutes more.
- Add spinach and sage, again, cook just another couple minutes, until it cooks down
- Place corn bread crumbs in large metal or glass bowl.
- Add entire contents of skillet to cornbread and toss well.
- Spread stuffing onto pork loin, spreading over meat to about 1/2 inch in from all sides and roll up and tie.
- Brush outside with melted butter or oil
- Cover loosely with foil and bake on rack over cookie sheet at 400 for about 55-65 minutes(remove foil at about 45 min or so to allow meat to brown) or until meat thermometer reads 140-145 degrees.
- Let rest a few minutes to make slicing easier.
- Serve with sauce.
For Fresh Peach Sauce
- Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
- Reduce heat to simmer and let simmer, stirring occasionally while roast is cooking, or about 45 minutes or so.
- Mush up a few of the peaches, if desired, to add texture to the sauce.
