Try the Crockpot-For-Rhubarb
Compotes and Sauces
Forget the saucepan! Use your crockpot-for-rhubarb stewed with savory spices to create rhubarb-toppings.
It's not just for meat. You can use your slowcooker for lots of things besides that.
Make great stewed rhubarb dishes to eat by itself, or as a great
topping for ice-cream or cake.
Your crockpot will do all of the work for you.
We are so accustomed to loading up our slow-cookers with meats for the day, we forget that they can achieve the same results with fruits and vegetables as well.
If you want to make a tasty sauce, and can't be home to do it, use those slowcooker-rhubarb recipes for compote you've been wanting to try, but just haven't had the time. It will be a nice treat to come home to.

Thick fresh-stewed rhubarb
Slowcooker for Rhubarb and Strawberries
6 cups chopped rhubarb
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. orange zest
1/3 cup grape juice
Combine all ingredients and place in slowcooker on low heat for
6 hours. Make sure rhubarb is tender.
Add: 2 cups of raspberries or cut fresh strawberries, and cook for
one more hour on low heat.
This can be served hot or cold over lemon or plain pound cake,
Angel-Food-Cake, or ice-cream, especially vanilla.
Instead of using your crockpot-for-rhubarb and few other recipes, do you as a rule use your crockpot much at all? If you want to get much more use out of your slow-cooker, you should have some basic
Crock Pot Staples
on hand. It's a very basic list.
Did you know?...2 1/2 hours of low heat in the oven is equal to 1 hour high heat in your crockpot. Depending
on the make of your slowcooker, it can vary but not by much.
Also, having a peek inside by taking off the lid increases
your cooking time by as much as 30 minutes.
