Slow Cooked Turkey Breast for 10

Turkey cooked in a slow cooker?  Never heard of it, never thought of it, and in fact, it sounded disgusting, but there she was with some interesting ingredients and no time, so why not try it?  She did and she was glad!  Here's what she did:

5 or 6 pound turkey breast
2 large onions, peeled and cut in half
3 large sweet potatoes, washed, unpeeled and cut in half
3 cups organic all natural apple cider
juice of 3 limes
turmeric, curry, cajun spice (or hot pepper), fresh basil

Place turkey and vegetables in slow cooker; cover with spices.  Pour apple cider (or wine, if you have no apple cider) and juice of 3 fresh limes.

Cook in slow cooker on high for one hour; lower to low for 6 hours.

Above was purely experimental.  What to cook for supper?  Look around -- what's in the vegetable bin, what's in the fridge, what kind of time do you have to prepare?

The answers to those questions resulted in the above concoction which turned out to fill the house with a heavenly aroma all day, and feed the appetite with a most delicious treat at supper time.


  1. will try following recuperation from thanksgiving.

    1. this would probably work for capon, and 2 chickens

  2. the sweet potatoes will be sweeter if they are not cut. the skin acts as a binder of the flavor, and intensifies it.
