Here is Susanna´s wonderful roast leg of pork with Rum recipe.

Pork leg marinated in adobe arrived to Mexico with the Spaniards and thus, here is the colonial merger ...

7 red ripe tomatoes
2 tblsps. sugar

*** Note: one can marinate this overnight if you wish in Rum, fresh squeezed orange juice, red onion, spring onion or shallots, yellow and white onion, thyme, sugar, peppercorns, kosher salt, garlic & bay leaf etcetra ( ingredients above).
 
1) preheat oven to 250 degrees centigrade

3) remove the chilies & reserve 
4) roast the tomatoes in oven until soft; do not peel
5) place the sugar, orange juice, salt, garlic & peppercorns in a blender or food processor
6) Convert ( number 5) into a coarse Purée or Pesto
7) take the pesto and brush on the leg of pork roast and place orange or tangerine slices with sliced onion around the roast. Then sprinkle the herbs, salt and pepper ground with the rest of the orange juice with 250 Ml. of Rum, on the bed of roasting pan
8) cover with aluminum foil and roast in oven until tender ( 3 hrs. or so )
9) After 1 hour, baste and recover

Margi, I actually printed this recipe back when you first posted it. I came across it in by recipe box and was reviewing it to gather the ingredients.  I see in step 4 that the tomatoes need to be roasted but I see no mention of where they are used in the recipe? I'm assuming that they are used to make the pesto? HELP!  RD
