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

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.
