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 pkg (8-oz) fresh cranberries
3 quarts water, divided
2 cups sugar
1 cup cinnamon red hot candies
24 whole cloves
3 cinnamon sticks
3 oranges, juiced
3 lemons, juiced

Boil the cranberries in 1 quart of the water for 10 minutes; set aside.

Mix the following in a 4-at to 6-qt slow cooker or crock pot; the remaining 2 quarts of water, sugar, red hot candies, cloves, and cinnamon sticks. Place lid on cooker and cook on high for 1 hour or until the candies have melted.

Strain the cranberry mixture and stir the liquid into the cooker. Mix in the juices from the oranges and lemons.

Replace lid on cooker and continue to cook on high for 2 hours. Turn heat to low to keep warm and serve directly from the cooker.
