To make another slow cooker recipe, sprinkle a pork roast with salt and pepper, and brown it on all sides in a hot skillet. Peel and slice 3 apples. Cut 16 slits in the pork roast, and insert a slice of apple into each slit. Place half of the remaining apple slices into the slow cooker.

Add the pork roast to the slow cooker, and pour 1/4 cup of honey on top. Cover the roast with the remaining apples and 1 red onion, thinly sliced. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cinnamon on top of the onion. Cover the slow cooker, and cook for six to eight hours on low.

After cooking, place the roast, apples and onions on a serving platter, and transfer the liquid to a saucepan. Bring the juices to a boil, and cook until the liquid reduces by half. Serve the sauce with the roast.
