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.

MAPLE-WALNUT SWEET POTATOES

3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, divided
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup dried cherries, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup apple cider or apple juice
1/4 tsp salt

Peel sweet potatoes and cut in half lengthwise. Cut halves crosswise into 1/2-inch slices. Place potatoes in a 5-quart slow cooker.

Add 1/2 cup of the walnuts, sugar, cherries, maple syrup, cider/juice, and salt to the potatoes in the cooker; toss to combine.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low 5 to 6 hours or until potatoes are tender. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup of nuts.
