In a large saucepan, combine the cider and kosher salt and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the salt.

In a heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat melt the butter. Add the the apples, and saute for 3-5 minutes. Add Herbie's Apple Pie Spice and caramelize the apples until they are golden brown and soft, but not mushy, another 5 minutes. Keep warm.

Drain the pork tenderloins and discard the brine. Pat the pork dry. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of neutral oil until shimmering.

Add the pork and cook over moderately high heat, turning, until browned all over, about 10 minutes. Transfer the pork to a rimmed baking sheet.

Spoon Williamson Wines Apple Horseradish Jam over the tenderloins. Roast the pork in the the oven for about 12 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat registers 130°. Transfer the pork to a work surface and let rest for 10 minutes.
