Place the ham fat side down.
Cook on "roast" setting for 15 minutes.

Allow the ham to stand for 15 minutes before slicing.
To make the sauce, peel the thin, colored part of the orange and cut into tiny julienne strips the length of a matchstick and half of the width.
Squeeze the orange into a 4-cup glass measuring cup and add the orange rind to the orange juice.
