    Remove roast from the oven. Carefully press a double layer of heavy-duty foil into the center of roast to form a base for stuffing. Spoon the stuffing lightly into crown. Return to oven and bake until a meat thermometer reads 160°F-170°F, about 1 hour more. Transfer to serving platter. Garnish with spiced crab apples if desired. Cut between the ribs to serve. Serves: 16-20.
