Variation
Try another flavor of marmalade, such as pineapple.
Success
If you have time, brown the pork in oil on all sides before placing in the slow cooker. Browning adds color and a deeper flavor.
Health Twist
Watching your salt intake? Omit the salt, and season with pepper.
Special Touch
This is a great recipe to serve for entertaining. Fan pork slices in a circular pattern on a platter, and spoon squash in the center. Drizzle remaining juices over pork, and garnish with slices of fresh orange.
