Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place pork on a rack in large shallow roasting pan. Roast for 3 1/2 hours to five hours or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part reads 145 degrees F. (About 15 minutes per pound.)

While pork is cooking, in a large bowl, combine wine, orange juice, honey, ginger, mustard and 4 teaspoons of orange peel. Add dried figs, apricots, apples and cranberries; stir to combine. Let stand while pork roasts, stirring occasionally.

About 45 minutes before pork is done, remove from oven. Spoon off excess fat.
