Slow-Cooked Turkey with Berry Compote(Crockpot)


1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 boneless turkey breast halves (2 pounds each)
1/3 cup water
2 medium apples, peeled and finely chopped
2 cups fresh raspberries
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup white grape juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Use frozen fruit when fresh is out of season.


1Mix salt, garlic powder, thyme and pepper; rub over turkey breasts. Place in a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. Pour water around turkey. Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours (a thermometer inserted in turkey should read at least 165°).
2Remove turkey from slow cooker; tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
3Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine compote ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and apples are tender, 15-20 minutes. Serve turkey with compote.
