I love my crockpot. I can just throw things in it without thinking about what order I do it in or whether or not something is going to burn. Plus, I can forget about the concoction for hours. This does not work so well with stove or oven cooked creations.
Earlier this evening, I threw together big chunks of organic green eggplant, a few juicy red tomatoes, a sliced carrot, a chopped onion, lots of chopped garlic, a sliced fuji apple and some free range chicken drumsticks. Then I added, cumin, turmeric, cayenne pepper, coriander, cloves, mustard, ginger, salt and black pepper and poured apple juice over the whole mixture.
I'm not sure how it tastes yet as it will be a few hours before its ready. Enough time for me to forget about it and do some reading, blogging, or something else. I'll have to report back on how it tastes.
