Cut 8 deep slits in the top of roast using a very sharp knife. Insert garlic into slits.
Mix mustard, vinegar, thyme, and sage in a small bowl. Using a pastry brush, coat roast with all of the mustard mixture. Place roast in roasting pan.
Warm the broth, apple juice, and jam in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until jam melts. Pour over roast. Arrange chopped apples around roast. Cover. Roast at 350 for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours, basting every 30 minutes or so.
Remove roast from pan and keep warm. Reserve 1/2 cup pan juices. Pour remaining pan juices and apples into a medium saucepan. Skim off as much fat as possible. Into reserved 1/2 cup pan juices, add sour cream and mix well. Add cornstarch and blend again until smooth.
Bring pan juices and apples (in saucepan) to a boil. Whisk in sour cream mixture and cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes, until bubbly and thickened. Serve apple gravy over thin slices of pork roast. Recipe from: Looneyspoons: Low-Fat Food Made Fun!
