WELCOME

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.

CRANBERRY CHRISTMAS PUNCH FOR A CROWD

3 quarts bottled cranberry juice
2 quarts apple juice
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp salt
8 cinnamon sticks
3 tsp whle cloves

In a large slow cooker or crockpot, mix the cranberry juice, apple juice, sugar, and salt together until the sugar is dissolved.  Tie the cloves and cinnamon sticks together in cheesecloth and add to the mixture.  Cover and cook for 2to 3 hours on low setting.  Remove spice bag.

Yield: 56 4-ounce servings.

Note: Lower the heat to the 'keep warm' setting if not using at once.

If your crowd isn't that big, reduced the ingredients by half.
