Good Eating Monday: Slow-Cooker Cranberry Wonder Sauce

Welcome to the first week of December!
Christmas is coming fast!  When I was a kid, time seemed to go so slow and Christmas took forever!

Today's Good Eating Recipe is: Slow Cooker Cranberry Wonder Sauce!

Perfect for Thanksgiving!
It's a fantastically flavorful way to cook Turkey or chicken or even roast beef!
It doesn't come out either sweet or cranberry tasting. I found the juice to have only faintest taste of cranberry and just the tiniest bit of sweetness, so it makes TERRIFIC gravy!
Absolutely lip-smacking!
This recipe came originally, but my addition of the Italian dressing was my own idea.

Slow-Cooker Wonder Sauce

Just 3 ingredients:

1 15oz can jellied cranberry sauce, any brand

1/2 cup Italian dressing, any brand
1/2 cup LIGHT cranberry juice, any brand or cranberry combo, like apple-cranberry, etc

Spray slow-cooker with an oil spray. Salt & pepper whatever meat you're planing to cook and arrange in your slow-cooker.
 (A large oval slow-cooker can accommodate a roasting hen or whole turkey breast.)
In saucepan: combine jellied cranberry sauce, Italian dressing & light cranberry juice over medium heat. Chop up cranberry sauce and stir until all melted and hot.
Pour hot sauce over your meat in the slow-cooker. Put lid on and set for either high or low, depending on what you're cooking and how long you want it to cook for.
The original recipe suggested 8-9 hours on low for a turkey breast.
Pot roast is usually 5-6.
Cranberry is acidic, so it makes a great tenderizer!

Eat up, me hearties, yo-ho!
