Quick Tip: Crockpot Cooking

Posted on 12 December, 2011 at 14:44 Comments comments (0)




When using the crockpot I prefer to always cook everything on high heat so that I know the foods are getting heated to the proper temperature, for food safety purposes.  

I see many recipes that call for a low setting of 8-9 hours.  Generally, as a rule of thumb low for 8-9 hours = high for 5-6 hours.  You can cook it high for at least 5 hours and then turn it down to low if you are home.  Some newer crockpots even let you program when you want the temperature to go down.  Sometimes I just leave it on high for even 7 hours and the food is still great. 

Happy cooking!
