Okay, I’ve got myself a new crock pot and reving up to use it big time. Made a great stew the other night and I thought it would be a good idea to use it for the holiday since it has a warmer setting. Great recipes, at of all places, www.crockpot.com. I’ve decided to add a page for crock pot recipes. Here is one recipe:

Mulled Apple Cider


1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 quarts apple cider
1 tsp whole allspice
1 1/2 tsp whole cloves
3 whole cinnamon sticks
2 large oranges, sliced

Put all ingredients in the slow cooker. Stir until the brown sugar is well dissolved. Cover cook on Low for 2 to 4 hours. Strain spices before serving.
