Beautiful and delicious, this appetizer is the perfect addition to your holiday spread.


  • duBreton Pork Tenderloin
  • tsp lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • tsp coarse black pepper
  • Tbsp finely chopped garlic, divided
  • Tbsp Vera Jane's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 large shallots, chopped
  • 1 cup tart dried cherries
  • 2 cups Merlot
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp ground clove
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 25 slices of crostini
  • ½ cup DLM Classic Dijon Mustard


Mix lemon zest, juice, fennel seeds, salt, pepper, 1.5 Tbsp chopped garlic, and 1.5 Tbsp olive oil in a small bowl. Place tenderloin in a roasting pan and coat evenly with spice mixture. Allow tenderloin to rest for 5 minutes or refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 425°F and roast pork until it is browned on outside and has an internal temperate of 150°F, about 20-30 minutes.
Meanwhile, add 3 Tbsp olive oil to saucepan over medium/low heat. Add shallots and 3 Tbsp chopped garlic and sauté until soft. Add cherries, wine, sugar, clove, and nutmeg to saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook until liquid is reduced to a glaze.
Transfer cherry mixture to a food processor or blender and process to desired texture. Set aside and cool.
Remove tenderloin from oven and allow it to rest and cool. Spread a light layer of mustard on crostini slices.
When the tenderloin has cooled, slice it on the diagonal into 1/8-inch slices. Roll slices into a cone shape and place a dollop of relish in the center. Place on top of crostini and garnish with fennel fronds if desired.
