1/4 cup Allspice berries
1 piece Cinnamon stick - (1 1/2" long)
1 teaspoon Grated nutmeg
Salt to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper to taste
4 pounds Boned pork loin
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the berries on a pie tin and roast for 10 minutes. Pulverize them in a spice mill with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Place the spice mixture in a food processor, fitted with a metal blade. Add the scallions and chile. Season with salt and pepper. Process until a paste is formed. Add the rum and mix well.
Rub the mixture all over the pork loin. Cover and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour at room temperature. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees. Remove the meat and place in a roasting pan, and roast for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and continue to roast for 1 1/2 hours, basting every 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with the Island Beans and Fried Plantains.
