Fruity Pork Roast

“I like using the slow cooker for our meals because it gives me time for other preparations, frees the oven, and it usually doesn’t matter if you serve it later than planned. The fruit in this recipe, which I adapted, gives the pork a special flavour.” —Mary Jeppesen-Davis, St. Cloud, Minnesota
