Directions

1
GLAZE:

In a small dish, combine preserves, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, salt & nutmeg. Stir well & set aside.
2
Put all of the veggies in the crock pot & top with the glaze.
3
Use a large spoon to stir the contents of the crock pot up a bit. (Don't worry if the preserves mixture isn't completely distributed.)
4
Cover & cook on HIGH for 3 - 4 hours or on LOW for 7 - 8 hours.
5
Once the veggies are cooked, in a small bowl, combine cornstarch with 2 tbsp cold water & stir until the cornstarch has dissolved. Add to the crock pot & mix well.
6
Turn off the pot & leave uncovered for 15 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken. Stir & add seasonings, to taste.
