Fix it and Forget it - Slow Cooker Recipes and Tips


Do you love your slow cooker, as much as we do? Research shows that 80% of American household own a slow cooker. I love my slow cooker, it's great for anytime of the year, especially during summer, when it's so hot. Keep your oven off during summer and relay on your slow cooker. 

If you don't own a slow cooker, I recommend one, click here.

We most often refer to fresh herbs, but not here when slow cooking. They concentrate flavor in cookers high moisture environment. If you want to use fresh herbs use them at the end of cooking or as a garnish. 

Do use the right size cooker, should be filled between one half to two thirds. Buy cheap cuts of meat. The slow cooker will keep them moist and tender. Brown meat before adding to slow cooker. Open lid as little as possible, best not to open lid at all. It takes the slow cooker 20 to 30 minutes to come back up to set temperature. Any leftover food should be transfer to food storage bowl before placing in refrigerator. Spray inside slow cooker with non stick cooking spray, makes for easy clean up. Cooking on high 1 hour is about equal to cooking on low for 2 hours. Place vegetables like potatoes, carrots and other root veggies on the bottom of slow cooker.

Garlic Sauteed Broccoli

Fresh broccoli from Mennonite Farm and Market in Delano,TN. I absolutely love this place, and a beautiful drive there. 

Sometimes Mennonites are often mistaken for Amish. Mennonites are not Amish. While Mennonites and Amish come from the same Anabaptist roots that begin in 16th century. Amish became a separate group from Mennonites. They both have many of the same beliefs, but Amish is stricter. Amish created their own communities isolated from the world, while Mennonites did not. They both live with no electricity, transportation is horse and buggy, hang clothes on clothes line, plain clothes and no technology.

Strawberry Lettuce with Watermelon Salad

Sunflower seeds are American original. Seeds are tasty and very nutritious. Add seeds to your salad or other favorite food. Seeds were used by the American Indians for high energy food, which was much needed. Spanish explorers brought the seeds to Europe. The seeds were returned to America with Russian and German immigrants. 

In North Dakota and Minnesota, sunflower became a important crop, in 1950.

Seeds and kernels:
In the shell... means the seed is left in tact with the meat still in the shell. Normally roasted and season. 

Kernels... processor have mechanically removed the hull. This form is more convenient. Roasted for snacking or to add to your favorite food.
