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.

PINEAPPLE-COCONUT-PEARL TAPIOCA

Cooking spray
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup regular small pearl tapioca (do not substitute)
(13.5-ounce) cans light coconut milk
large egg
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh pineapple
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut, toasted


Coat a 4-quart electric slow cooker with cooking spray. Combine sugar, tapioca, and coconut milk in slow cooker, stirring with a whisk. Cover and cook on LOW for 2 hours or until most of tapioca is transparent. (Pudding will be thin.)
2. Place egg in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Add 1/2 cup hot tapioca mixture to egg, stirring constantly with a whisk. Stir egg mixture into remaining tapioca mixture in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 30 minutes. Turn off slow cooker. Stir pineapple into tapioca mixture; cover and let stand 30 minutes. Serve warm or chilled. Top each serving with toasted coconut.

This is a Cooking Light recipe from a few years ago.
