2/3 cup honey
1 envelope onion soup mix
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Make 15-20 slits, about 1 to 1-1/2 in. deep, in the roast; place some fruit in each slit. In a bowl, combine the water, honey, soup mix, ketchup, lemon juice, peel and remaining fruit; mix well.

Place roast fat side up in a roasting pan. Pour fruit mixture over the top. Cover and bake at 325° for 3 to 3-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before carving. Makes 6-8 servings.
