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.

HEALTHY HOMEMADE CROCK POT KETCHUP/BBQ SAUCE (NO PROCESSED WHITE SUGAR)

1 (28 oz) can organic tomato puree (I try to by Eden brand for canned - it is BPA free) 
2 small cans organic tomato paste 
1 small onion, chopped 
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (use good quality such as Braggs) 
3 tablespoons raw, organic honey 
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice 
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper 
sea salt to taste 
fresh ground black pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into medium sized crock pot. Stir well. Cover and turn on high for 2 - 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and puree with an immersion blender, or use a food processor to blend until smooth. Cook in crock pot for another ½ hour or so, until thick in consistency. 
Cool and transfer to storage container, leaving about 1 - 1 ½ cups in the crock pot.
