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.

6 sliced bacon, fried, drained on paper towels, crumbled into large pieces
1 head(approx. 2 lbs) cabbage, sliced
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 Granny Smith apples, cored, quartered
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1 cup hot water
1 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp of the bacon drippings

Layer ingredients in a slow cooker or crockpot in the following order: cabbage, bacon, onion, salt, apples, pepper, sugar, vinegar, bacon drippings, and water.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low approximately 8 hours or on high about 3 hours until cabbage is tender.  Stir well before serving.
I prefer this type of cooker for this recipe but to each his own.  I like these ingredients spread out in layers rather than so stacked.
Yield: approximately 6 servings
