Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

3 medium onions, sliced
1 small head cabbage, cut into wedges
1 (3 to 4-lb)corned beef brisket
1 cup apple cider
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp grated orange peel
2 tsp yellow mustard
6 whole cloves
1 jar (14-oz) spiced apple rings

Place the onions and cabbage in the slowcooker or crockpot. Trim excess fat from brisket and place atop the vegetables.

In a bowl, stir together the apple cider, brown sugar, orange peel, mustard, and cloves; pour over the meat. Put the cover on the pot and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.

To serve, remove to serving platter and garnish with the apple rings.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
