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.

SPICY HAM

2 to 2 1/2 lbs smoked boneless pork shoulder butt
2 cups water
6 whole cloves
1 lay leaf
4 whole peppercorns
1 stalk celery, cut up
1 large carrot, pared and sliced

Place the celery and carrot into the crockpot or slow cooker.  Place the pork over the vegetables.  Combine the water, cloves, bay leaf, and peppercorns; pour over the pork.  Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours.  Drain and serve.

OPTION:
Slice the cooked pork into 1/2-inch thick slices; place in a shallow baking pan. 

Glaze:
1 jar (10-oz) currant jelly
3 tbsp fresh horseradish
1/2 tsp prepared mustard

Heat in a small saucepan, stirring until smooth and heated through.  Brush the glaze over the pork slices and bake at 350 degrees, uncovered, for about a half hour.
