Slow cookers

Posted: 17/10/2014 at 21:47

Whole chickens , we cook it in a "chicken brick" , a clay pot we bought years ago which you soak in water before cooking , it takes hours and the chicken just falls to pieces and nice and moist but can't leave it for ever

Hello again , personally I don't put Cauliflower or Brocoli in but everything else , plus herbs , garlic , chillies , mushrooms anything I fancy 

beef and pork seem to do the best 

another favourite is a gammon joint with chopped apple and cider 

good job I have just had my dinner other wise I would be feeling hungry

just remembered my good lady did lamb shanks last Sunday in the slow cooker they where fabulous

Chilli and garlic questions

hello , chillies I have just picked mine ,it is getting cold in the g/h . What I do is tie a bit of string between 2 window handles in the conservatory , then tie the chillies on with cotton , and the green ones always turn red 

Garlic i only ever plant straight into the ground and so far I have not had any problems , personally can't see the point of putting them in modules ? No doubt somebody will time me why

Slow cookers are great , used to have one with a pottery lid and nothing evaporated , now got one with a glass lid and we get a bit of evaporation , so can't leave it all day 

just pile in the veg and meat and leave it , ha ho several hours later great meal

Hello , fine sunny day in Lincolnshire , my wife had gone up the allotment to plant some daffy , more garlic and onions. 

Unfortunately I have a meeting in Lincoln today , so hopefully I can get up there on Sunday , weather permitting of course 

had a nice afternoon in the garden yesterday lots of tidying up , including harvesting the chillies from the g/h , more than I thought
