It’s that time of the year again when it feels like winter has been here forever and although it’s spring the snow drifts keep piling up and we’re bored with hot food. The crew have been exploring winter warming recipe’s to tickle the palate but at the same time not cost us hours and hours in the kitchen.
Did you know that crock-pots and slow cookers are not the same thing ? I didn’t either. All Crock Pots are slow cookers, not all slow cookers are Crock Pots. The Crock-pot design came about because of the Jewish Sabbath, the day of rest in which Jews are not supposed to do any work. You can read more about the history here: From humble to high tech, a slow cooker history or the short version here: A Brief History Of The Crock Pot, The Original Slow Cooker
