Salt and pepper to taste

About 30 minutes before roasting time is complete, in a saucepan, combine cherry jam or preserves, corn syrup, vinegar and spices. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. reduce heat to simmer and cook 2 more minutes. (this step could be done in a microwave oven instead). Add toasted almonds(if using). When meat has roasted for 2 hours, remove from oven and spoon enough cherry sauce over the roast to glaze. Return to oven for about 30 additional minutes, or till a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees. Baste roast with sauce several times during last 30 minutes. Serve remaining cherry sauce with the roast.
