After 4.5 hours in the slow cooker the 6.5# turkey breast was still raw. I did cook the bird on low and after 3.5 hours and no cooking progress, raised the cooker up to high for the hour . The bottom of the breast, the part sitting on top of the vegetables, was close to being done, but approximately 90% of the breast was raw. Fortunately I was able to transfer (very messy) the turkey and veggies into an oven bag and finish it in the oven. The turkey was very moist, tender and had wonderful flavor; I just can't rate this recipe any higher because of having to finish the bird in the oven. I will use the recipe ingredients & directions, minus the slow cooker, again as it had great flavor.
