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 LIMA BEANS

1 lb dry lima beans (soaked overnight in water)
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 lb cubed cooked ham
1 cup water
1 can tomato soup

Drain the beans and place in the crockpot or slowcooker.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir together to mix well.  Place lid on cooker and cook on low setting 8 to 10 hours or on high setting 4 to 5 hours.

May I suggest serving these beans with a piece of hot buttered cornbread?  Yummy!
