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.

WARM APPLE-CHERRY SAUCE

2 cans (21-oz) apple pie filling
2 to 3 cups frozen tart red cherries
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cloves

Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker or crock pot; stir to combine.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low setting 3 to 4 hours until hot and bubbly, stirring occasionally.

Serving Suggestions:
  • Warm over ice cream
  • Warm over pound cake
  • As shortcake
Also good topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with chopped nuts, if desired.

NOTE:  You can make this diabetic-friendly by using Splenda-sweetened Apple-Pie Filling and serving it over sugar-free ice cream or sugar-free angel food cake.
