Crock Pot Blues

Hi! Crock Pots are really cool, I am sure. Is there any way you can make these recipes without owning a crock pot???


I don’t think I’d want to. The magic of crock pot cooking is put ingrediants in an forget about it till later (convinence)CC

Of course you can make these recipes without a crockpot. You just have to cook for a longer time at a lower (than normal) temperature and check on it more than if you used the crockpot. Where there is a will, there is a way!

Glad to have you with us. You’ll find that we are a happy, helpful bunch of food loving people. So feel free to ask away and post any recipes you might like to share.


Forty years ago I simply put all the ingredients in my Dutch Oven, added liquid, put it in the oven at 250 degrees. Eight hours later it was perfect!

Actually, most of these recipes were were probably converted from slow cook in the oven or on the stove top. Just use a heavy cooking vessel with a tight fitting lid (I’m with Grandmama, I like a dutch oven).
