In the 70's, when I first began my journey into the wonderful world of cooking, I had in my kitchen an appliance that no self respecting cook of that time would be without...The original Rival CROCK-POT. It served me well for years and for one reason or another was abandoned and forgotten as new interests in that area came along. Years later I bought a new 'improved' model but was very disappointed with the boiling instead of slow cooking so out that one went and on to the next, with the same sorry results. What to do? I really wanted that famous 8 hour, turn a tough, inexpensive piece of meat tender, result again. The only answer to this would be, find that old Crock-pot, and that I did and a book to go with. Thank you Kiwanis Thrift Store!
Do any of you have an old one or have you found a new one that works well? What is your favorite thing to make in your Crock pot? My daughter is currently making overnight granola in the old one I picked up for her, which is now the only one she uses as it actually cooks on low.
I'm off now to put a ham bone and some beans in mine and dinner will be covered....Thank you old Rival.
