Recently Crock Pot Canada sent a slow cooker for me to demo. I have not cooked with a slow cooker much so I was eager to get the Crock Pot and give it a go. I shared my thoughts on the product in a recent post. Today I have another recipe to share with you that is great in the slow cooker.
This recipe is a classic German dish called Blaukraut. This is a vegetable side dish of slow braised cabbage with apples. It has a sweet tart flavour and it tastes amazing! I remember having it as a kid but I do not know if I ever made it myself. I made this for a family Christmas meal last month and I loved it and knew I had to do it again so I could get a photo and put it on the website.
