Heat butter in a large skillet over medium low heat; add the chopped onion, celery, apples, and chopped dried cranberries. Cook, stirring, for about 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar, hot water, lemon juice, salt, sage or poultry seasoning, and bread cubes.
Place roast in a roasting pan. Fill the crown of the roast with stuffing, heaping in center. Cover stuffing with a piece of foil to prevent drying out and wrap ends of each bone with a small piece of foil. Roast at 325° for 3 to 4 hours, or until the meat registers about 175° on a meat thermometer. Remove foil. If desired, decorate tips with paper frills. The pork roast recipe serves 8 persons....enjoy it !
