Ingredients

  • 3 cup blueberries, frozen
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 2 tablespoon mustard
  • 2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1 1/2 pound pork roast
  • 1 1/2 cup club soda
  • 6 ounce tomato paste, canned

Serve With

  • 4 medium rolls, dinner, wheat
  • 4 stalk celery
  • 4 medium carrot

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, mix together 2 cups frozen berries, water, sugar, and the zest from the lemon (about 1 tablespoon) as well as its juice (2-3 tablespoons).
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced by about 1/4. Set aside to cool, then transfer to a sealed container and place in the refrigerator.
  • In a small bowl, mix together mustard, chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Rub over pork and place into crockpot.
  • Add the remaining 1 cup blueberries, club soda, tomato paste, and 1 cup of the blueberry mixture. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  • Once finished cooking, remove any liquid from the crockpot and add, along with the remaining blueberry mixture, to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and allow to slightly thicken.
  • Meanwhile, shred pork with two forks; keep in the slow cooker to keep warm. Cut celery and carrots into sticks.
  • Once the liquid has thickened, add it back to the pork and stir well to coat.
  • Serve pork on whole wheat rolls, with celery and carrot sticks on the side.
