Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 (3 lb) boneless turkey roast (thawed, if frozen)
1 jar (10-oz) cherry preserves
1 can (8-oz) crushed pineapple, drained
2 tbsp lemon juice
dash of ground cloves

Place the turkey roast in a slowcooker or crockpot. Add the lid and cook on low setting for 8 hours.

Just before serving time, heat the cherry preserves, pineapple, lemon juice and cloves in a saucepan. Heat thoroughly.

To serve hot: Place turkey on a warmed platter and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Spoon some of the sauce over the turkey and pass the rest with the turkey.

To serve cold: Remove the turkey from the cooker. Promptly refrigerate to cool quickly. When chilled, cover the meat. Chill sauce. Slice the turkey and arrange on a platter. Serve sauce over the slices.

Yield: 10 to 12 servings.
