Spicy Apple Pork Roast

One of my favorite reasons for Fall is the use of apples in so many dishes... that involve pork. No to apple pie, no to apple bundles. I kinda hate baked fruit(which you're gonna find today's whoopie pies funny) I just have never been a fan of baked apples. The texture I think, but I do love the added flavor they give dishes & this one was no different. I stumbled upon this apple salsa at Aldis and I knew instantly what was going to happen with it. and it didn't involve tortilla chips. and if you can't find this salsa, never fear...read the notes section and I will have an alternate idea.


Ingredients
1 pork butt or roast
1 jar of Apple salsa
1 small sweet onions, sliced thin
2 apples, cut in small pieces
1 tsp of red pepper flakes
1/4 cup peach vodka, or brandy

Directions
Place meat in crockpot and dump in all ingredients, cook on low for 6 hrs. and I also cut up a sweet potato & a few red bliss potatoes & with about an hour left I added them to the crockpot, just stirred them about every 15 minutes.

Notes
If you cannot find this, try using 1 cup of applesauce, 1 small can of Mexican spiced tomatoes & a pinch of cinnamon & nutmeg, along w/salt & pepper to taste.

These would also be really good as tacos & fajitas, we've made them that way before and yum!

This was so easy to make and my kitchen smelled superb!!!
