Slow-Cooked Turkey with Berry Compote

We love to eat turkey, and on hot summer days, here's how we get our fix. For golden-brown turkey, broil for a few minutes before serving. —Margaret Bracher, Robertsdale, Alabama
  • Total Time
    Prep: 35 min. Cook: 3 hrs + standing.
  • Makes
    12 servings (3-1/4 cups compote)

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 boneless turkey breast halves (2 pounds each)
  • 1/3 cup water

  • 2 medium apples, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup white grape juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions

  • Mix salt, garlic powder, thyme and pepper; rub over turkey breasts. Place in a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. Pour water around turkey. Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours (a thermometer inserted in turkey should read at least 165°).
  • Remove turkey from slow cooker; tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine compote ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until mixture is slightly thickened and apples are tender, 15-20 minutes. Serve turkey with compote.
