fresh thyme, sage, rosemary
( single herb or combination)
Season pork roast well with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, combine spreadable fruit, onion, mustard, brandy, lemon peel, rosemary, sage, thyme, and pepper.
Place roast in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Pour fruit mixture over roast.
Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours (adjust cooking time to your crockpot).
Remove roast from cooker. Cover loosely with foil and let stand for 15 minutes before carving. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the water and cornstarch; carefully stir in liquid from slow cooker. Cook and stir sauce until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir 2 minutes more.
Serve sauce with pork. If desired, garnish with fresh apricots and herbs.
