“I found this recipe on the McCormick Spice website and it is absolutely unique and delicious, especially for a crockpot recipe. The flavors compliment each other so nicely, both sweet and savory - it is a definite keeper! Serve with crusty bread to sop up the extra juices and a nice, tossed salad on the side. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! PS - Don't be deterred by wrapping up the pickling spice in the cheesecloth - it literally takes less than a minute!”
