- Combine onions, Crofter’s Organic® fruit spread, barbeque sauce, dark brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Mix together.
- Place the pork roast in a slow cooker and cover it in the apricot mixture. Put the slow cooker on low and cook for 8-9 hours.
