This book is for everyone who has a slow cooker and wants to explore all the things you can do with it. The first ten page chapter teaches you how to best use your slow cooker, what you need to be concerned about, including how to adapt regular recipes to slow cooker recipes. You will also get really good advice on food safety, when to add various kinds of ingredients, and how to layer them in your cooker. They warn you, for example, to not have your timer start your cooker more than two hours after you put the ingredients in the pot. And never cook your meat from a frozen state. Also, if you have large roasts, cut them in half. When you should add your pasta, how you prepare ground meat for clos cooking, and how to use dry versus fresh herbs. Helpful tips, right?
Since this is The Ultimate book on slow cooking, you get recipes for things I know I never even expected could be done in a slow cooker, but once you think through the recipes they really do make sense. You get chapters on appetizers and beverages (yes, drinks such as hot chocolate, hot punches, and the like), breakfasts, soups, stews, poultry, beef & veal, pork & lamb, meals without meat, side dishes, and even desserts.
Each recipe tells you the ingredient list, the size of slow cooker the recipe is made for (so you can adjust to yours), the steps to make the dish (remember it isn't all just dump it in, turn it on, and come back 8 hours later), and nutrition information. Many of the dishes have appetizing photographs of the dish.Read more ›
I gave the gift anyway--but I typed some of my family's favorites such as dilled pot roast, ribs and sauerkraut, and a few others.
