Tomato Apple Pork Roast

THIS preparation is similar to a canning recipe I do every fall. The result is a very tender, moist, fall-off-your-fork roast. For a one-pot meal, add unpeeled new potatoes and baby carrots.

    I loved the taste. It was very good. The only change I made was to cook it in the slow cooker. Next time I make it I will not use any water. I cooked it on low for 4 1/2 hours and it turned out very moist and tender..
