Crockpot Side Dishes
Why crockpot cooking?
- It is easy and convenient. You just place all of the ingredients in the pot in the morning before you leave the house and come home to a delicious, cooked meal. What could be better?
- You need to add 20 - 30 minutes additional cooking time for each time you lift up the lid.
- You food is more flavorful. Because it is slowing cooking all day the juices have a chance to soak in and marinate the ingredients of your recipe.
- The direct heat from the crockpot, the lengthy cooking time and the steam created inside the pot combine to destroy bacteria and make slow cooking a safe process for cooking foods.
- A crock pot costs less to operate than a stove or oven.
- It's one-pot cooking. You have less to clean up.
- Crockpots use about the same amount of electricity as an electric light bulb.
- Because you need to plan ahead to make a crock pot meal the ingredients are more nutritious.
- One hour of cooking on high equals 2 to 2 1/2 hours on low.
