Fast Cooking in a Slow Cooker Every Day of the Year: A Slow Cooker Vegetarian Cookbook
by Joann RachorAbout the book:
A few years ago Joanne Rachor decided to do research on slow cookers.
First she bought and tested 25 slow cookers. To determine how they really operated, she monitored how long they took to cook one pound of navy beans. Her research showed that even when cooking on low, all slow cookers don’t take the same length of time to cook. She divided them into three categories.
The “average” slow cookers took 9-9 1/2 hours and required 5 cups of water to cook a pound of navy beans. The “fast” slow cookers took 8-8 1/2 hours and needed 5 1/2 cups of water, and the “extra fast” slow cookers took 6 1/2-7 hours and needed 5 1/2 cups of water. This is the simple test she recommends others do with their slow cookers.
With this information the recipes in her book can be prepared with ease knowing how to make great meals that promise to be ready when you are!
And then, to really make sure your meal is perfectly done when you get home from work you may want to use a lamp appliance timer plugged into the cooker, so that the electricity goes on at just the right time during the day so that your meal is perfectly cooked when you get home from work and are ready to eat.
“Slow cookers can really help a busy family eat healthy good tasting and wholesome food,” she says. It’s a great way to make sure you have a good meal waiting for you and the family when everyone gets home.
