Blueberry Pulled Pork

There is no reason to use your slow cooker only during the winter months. It is perfectly suited to warm weather use, because you can make a hot meal without heating up the kitchen. Using fresh, in-season ingredients is a great way to make a slow-cooker dish taste more summery,. In this dish, the blueberries nearly melt away, creating a rich sauce for the pork.
