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.

8 cups water
2 cups steel-cut oats (no substitutes!)
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup dried apricots, cut up
1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt (to suit your taste)

Combine all ingredients in a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker and place lid on cooker.

Turn to low setting and cook for 7 to 8 hours until the oats are tender and the mixture is creamy.

Yield: 8 servings

Note: This is a recipe I received from Eating Well.
