No, it’s not a pre-holiday fever dream—you can actually cook a turkey this year without even cracking open that oven!



  1. In a food processor, purée 2 cups (210 g) of the cranberries with the apple jelly, cranberry juice, cornstarch and five-spice powder until smooth. Strain through a sieve. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the turkey roast in the butter. Season with salt and pepper. Place in the slow cooker.
  3. In the same skillet, brown the onions. Add butter, if needed. Add the cranberry mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Transfer to the slow cooker. Add the remaining whole cranberries (3/4 cup/80 g).
  4. Cover and cook on Low for 4 hours.
  5. Serve with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.
