Orange-Cranberry Glazed Pork Tenderloin

1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

Bring the first 9 ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer mixture, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
Place pork in a lightly greased, shallow roasting pan.
