Hog In The New Year!

So traditon has it in our family to have some type of pork on New Year's Day. Something that started back with my husband's grandma. Grandma Rose said you had to hog in the new year and hopefully it will be properous for you. Sometimes I must admit we took the easy way out and just had some bacon for breakfast. This year I would like to share a new recipe I just tried out and happen to love. All you slow cooker fans will love this one!

1 center cut pork roast, trim excess fat
1 can of whole berry cranberry sauce
1 can of mandarin oranges, soup can size include the juice from the can
2 cups of orange juice
1 tsp. each of salt, garlic powder and onion powder
black pepper to taste

Place roast in slow cooker and add all ingrediants. Make sure some of the oranges and cranberry sauce gets on the top of the pork. Cook on high for 1 hour and then turn to low. Continue to heat on low for at least 3 hours. You can slice the roast or it can also be shredded for a great pork sandwich.

I hope 2010 brings you much happiness, health and good company. Happy New Year!
