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.

HOT SPICED CHERRY CIDER

3 1/2 quarts apple cider
2 cinnamon sticks (additional for stirrers, if desired)
2 pkgs (3-oz each) cherry-flavored gelatin
Lemon slices for garnish, optional
Apple slices for garnish, optional
Maraschino cherries for garnish, optional

In a crock pot (4 to 6-quart size works well), mix the apple cider and cinnamon sticks.  Heat for 3 hours on high. Stir in the gelatin and cook at least another hour on high, allowing the gelatin to completely dissolve. Turn cooker to low to keep the cider warm and serve directly from the cooker.

If desired, add cinnamon sticks for stirrers and garnish with your choice of garnishes.
