  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours, stirring once about half-way through.
  3. Uncover and if desired, lightly mash potatoes.
  4. Taste, and add salt & pepper or additional orange zest to your liking.

Hi Jenn – I need this done by noon on Thanksgiving day. Any ideas on how to prepare other than waking up at 4am?
