Instructions
  1. Peel and slice the onions. Peel and coarsely chop the garlic.
  2. Wash the celery and remove any bad ends and leaves. Chop crosswise thinly about a quarter inch thick.
  3. Peel the carrots, cut off the ends and slice in the same way as the celery. For thicker carrots cut first along the length to make smaller.
  4. Wash the apple, cut into quarters and remove the seeds and core. Slice and chop in to chunks.
  5. Add vegetables, garlic and apple to the slow cooker pot (I'm using a 6 quart slow cooker). Add the bay leaves.
  6. Cut the lemon in half and juice.
  7. Remove the pork shoulder from the packaging and place in a large mixing bowl. Don't remove the string! Pour the lemon juice over the pork. Cover the top side of the pork liberally with all of the spices, salt and pepper.
  8. There are a couple of ways to season the pork. I prefer to eye-ball how much spice and shake directly from the spice jar. The other ways to measure out all the spices into a small bowl, mix them well and then evenly sprinkle half of the spices over one side of the pork roast.
  9. Carefully lift the pork from the bottom out of the bowl and place the seasoned side down on top of the vegetables in the slow cooker pot. There will be leftover lemon juice and spices in the mixing bowl. Pour this over the top of the pork and season the top side with the remaining spices.
  10. Cover the pot and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours.
  11. Remove the roast and cut away the string. Slice or break apart with a knife and fork. Here's a serving suggestion with a bit of the sauce drizzled over the meat and vegetables. Enjoy!
