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.

RASPBERRY-RHUBARB COMPOTE

3 cups sliced fresh rhubarb (or thawed frozen rhubarb)
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp quick-cooking tapioca
2 containers (6-oz each) fresh raspberries
grated zest of 1 lemon
1 tbsp finely chopped crystalized ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Combine the rhubarb, water, sugar, honey, and tapioca in a slow cooker or crockpot.  Press the mixture down to form an even layer.  Place lid on cooker and cook about 2 1/2 hours on high setting or 5 hours on low setting, or until the rhubarb is tender.

Approximately 35 minutes before the end of the cooking time, stir in the raspberries, lemon zest, ginger, and cinnamon.  Replace lid and cook on high until the mixture begins to simmer and the raspberries are tender.  This will take about 30 minutes.

Before serving, stir in the vanilla until well blended.
