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.

HAM AND SPLIT PEA SOUP

1 lb diced cooked ham
6 cups water
1 lb dry split peas
2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried marjoram, crushed
1/4 tsp black pepper

Place the ham in the slowcooker or crockpot. Add the water, split peas, potatoes, onion, celery, salt, marjoram, and pepper; stir to blend ingredients. Add the lid to the cooker and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours. Before servings, stir the mixture and add more salt and pepper if needed to suit your taste.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings.
