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.

1/4 cup orange juice
1 stick butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
4 to 5 lbs sweet potatoes
1 cup dried cranberries

In a 6-quart crock pot or slow cooker, combine the orange juice, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Place lid on cooker and cook on high while you prepare the potatoes.

To prepare potatoes, wash, peel, and cut into 1-inch pieces; stir potatoes into the warm mixture in the cooker. Replace lid and cook on high 3 to 4 hours.

Once the potatoes are soft, stir to mashed consistency; add cranberries and reduce heat setting to low. Cook for another 30 minutes.
