  1. Sprinkle inside of goose with salt. Prick skin well; place breast side up on a rack in a large shallow roasting pan. In a small bowl, combine the flour and mustard; stir in wine and orange juice until smooth. Pour over goose. Add onion to pan.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 3 to 3-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180° (cover with foil during the last hour to prevent overbrowning).
  3. Discard onion. Cover goose and let stand 10-15 minutes before carving. Pour pan drippings into a 2-cup measuring cup; skim off fat. Add enough water to measure 2 cups.
  4. In a large saucepan, combine juices and jam. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; add to juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in oranges. Serve with goose. Yield: 8-10 servings.
