    3. 3
      Mix in bag thouroughly.
    4. 4
      Take a sharp fork and poke holes all over the roast, add roast to bag.
    5. 5
      Squeeze all the air out of the bag and squeeze and massage the marinade into the roast, be sure it is completely covered.
    6. 6
      Refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight, turning the bag now and then.
    7. 7
      Line a roaster pan with tinfoil or parchment paper, and place roast in centre of roaster.
    8. 8
      Squeeze any marinade left in the bag on top of the roast and spread it evenly with a knife,'til the roast is completely crusted.
    9. 9
      Roast in a 400f degree oven for approximately 2 hours,or'til juice runs clear, but do not overcook.
    10. 10
      Let stand, covered, for 15 minutes before carving (Because this is a very lean cut of pork, with almost no fat, some of the marinade may burn on the bottom of the roaster on the parchment, it will not hurt the roast); Serve the other half of the appelsauce at the table with the roast.

      This was a big hit with my family. The ginger seemed a little spicy but it really mellowed during cooking! I will make this again and again.

      Very nice, tender meat. My husband and I both enjoyed it very much. The only thing that I would change next time is to cut back just a bit on the lemon juice as I found the citrus taste came through just a little too much for my personal liking.
