Party.Freak's picture
  Rolled pork loin 6 Pound
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper 1
  Oranges 2 1⁄2 Medium
  Whole cloves 3
  Orange marmalade 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Regular all purpose flour 1 Tablespoon
  Dry mustard 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Grated orange peel 3 Teaspoon

About 3 hours and 30 minutes before supper:
1. Start heating oven to 325°F.
2. Place loin, fat-side up, on rack in shallow, open roasting pan; sprinkle with salt and pepper; insert roast-meat thermometer into meaty part of roast.
3. Roast 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until thermometer registers 170°F.
4. Meanwhile, cut oranges into slices 1/4 inch thick. Halve slices, then insert 3 cloves, 1/4 inch apart, in top peel of each; refrigerate, covered.
5. In bowl, mix well marmalade, flour, mustard, and grated orange peel; set aside.
6. When roast is done, remove from oven; turn oven temperature up to 400°F. Remove string, if any; then with sharp knife, make about 12 crosswise slashes, 1 1/2 inches deep, equidistantly across top of roast. Spread roast with marmalade mixture; dip orange slices in rest of it, then insert a slice in each slash, holding edges of meat apart with knife blade. Spread rest of marmalade over orange slices.
7. Return roast to oven for 12 minutes, or until glazed: then remove to wooden board, cut in half crosswise, then place halves, side by side, on platter as pictured. Garnish with water cress, frosted fresh fruit, if desired.
