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.

1 1/2 cups water
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup fresh basil, finely shredded
1 cinnamon stick
8 fresh nectarines, pitted and quartered
1 tbsp lemon juice

Combine the water, sugar, basil, cinnamon stick and nectarines in a crockpot or slow cooker.  Place lid on cooker and cook on high 2 to 3 hours.  Remove the nectarines and set aside.  Remove the cinnamon stick and discard.  Let the syrup cool then strain.

Stir the lemon juice into the strained syrup; place nectarines back into the syrup.

This is a great topping for ice cream, pound cake, etc.
