Wine-braised Turkey Breast

3 pounds boneless turkey breast
1 medium onion -- halved, and thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 large garlic clove -- thinly sliced
Salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
1/4 cup Madeira wine
1 tablespoon honey
1 ounce dried mushrooms such as Porcini - (to 2 oz) -- soaked in 1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons cold water

Take turkey breast out of wrapping and netting, and rinse under cold water; pat dry. Place turkey breast in crockpot; add onion, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper, wine, honey, and mushrooms with soaking liquid. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours.

During the last 30 minutes pour liquid into a container to skim excess fat, if desired, and return broth to pot. Stir cornstarch mixture in and continue cooking until smooth and thickened.

This recipe yields 5 to 6 servings.
