“A great crock pot recipe.If you don't want to use turmeric (it's rather pungent) you can use a dash of ground ginger instead. I like this with couscous, but you can use rice, my husband can't stand couscous ( I don't understand why), so I usually serve rice. If you do use couscous, cook it in pineapple juice instead of water, it is a great flavor twist! I got this from the Betty Crocker Slow Cooker Cookbook.”
