LOOKING for: Crockpot advice
I lugged our old crockpot up from the basement, trying to come up with a different method of cooking in this heat. I made African Chicken, cooked it on low for 5.5 hours and it really isn't good. Guess that's why the crockpot has been in the basement for so long. To me, food cooked in a crockpot reminds me of hospital cafeteria food - steamed and tasteless. I thought I read somewhere that you can place a kitchen towel under the lid to absorb moisture, thus avoiding that steamed food effect. Has anyone else tried this? Does it work? I tried to avoid the recipes that call for a can of cream of mushroom or celery or chicken soup...but maybe those ingredients are necessary with a crockpot??
