The best place to warm the tortillas is in the oven: it's quicker than a skillet and less drying than a microwave. As soon as you remove the pork, turn off the heat, wrap the tortillas in foil, and warm them for 10 to 20 minutes.

Hands-on time: 15 minutes
Total time: 6 hours (includes cooling)

Makes 10 to 12 servings

1 5 1/2- to 6-pound boneless pork shoulder
3 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
4 teaspoons ground cumin
1 cup (1 12-ounce jar) apricot jam or preserves
3 jalapeños, sliced into rings and seeded
2 small red onions, roughly chopped
20 to 24 small flour or corn tortillas, warmed
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
2 limes, cut into wedges

Heat oven to 300° F. Place 2 large sheets of aluminum foil on a work surface, one atop the other. Repeat with 2 more large sheets. Place the 2 sets of sheets alongside one another and fold the edges to join them. Place the pork in the center of the foil and season on all sides with the salt, pepper, and cumin. Spoon the jam over the pork, turning to coat. Scatter the jalapeños and onion around the pork. Fold the double layer of foil around the pork and crimp the edges to seal tightly. Place in a baking dish. Roast until fork-tender, about 5 1/2 hours; let cool. Unwrap the pork, reserving the juices and discarding the foil. Use a fork to shred the pork. Transfer to a bowl. Add the onion, jalapeños, and some of the cooking juices to the pork and toss. Serve with the tortillas, cilantro, and lime wedges.
