Tuesday 12th October 2010

Slow Cookers could well be the thing of the future.

One day, every house will have at least one, with some having more.
Some houses will even have one in every room, but only those houses owned by extremely extravagent people.

The things you can do in them is virtually limitless, if you put your mind to it.
There is simply nothing you can't cook, and I bet Jamie Oliver wouldn't be able to compete either.

Start in the kitchen but don't just cook caseroles in it, be adventurous.

Try slow cooked cheese on toast, the cheese will melt like nothing you have ever had before.
Or spaghetti bolognese. You could use tinned tomatoes, that Dolmio stuff in a jar, or for an extra special treat, fresh tomatoes and just cook that little bit longer.
If you want to slow cook the pasta, then you have two options.
Either use a second slow cooker, or simply chuck it in with the sauce.
Either way, you will have to break it in half to get it in, unless you have a massive one.

Get a slow cooker for the bedroom, forget the Teasmaid.
Put a teabag and a cup of water in it and plug it in before you go to bed.
When you wake up in the morning you may well have the best cup of tea you have ever had.
Don't try it with coffee though, cause coffee boiled is coffee spoiled.

If you cook a meal that has a nice sauce, don't bother washing your slow cooker out as this will be the ideal base for your next meal.
If it was nice the night before, it will be better the day after.
If you are worried about the health and safety aspect, then leave your slow cooker on real low and keep it bubbling.

For the best roast chicken ever cooked, keep your slow cooker on extra slow and place a fresh egg inside, free range is best.
After the first couple of days, keep checking the egg every day or so but be careful not to open the slow cooker to much during the middle of the cooking time or you may have an escapee on your hands, but keep checking and it will just be a matter of time until your roast chicken, succulent and tasty, will be ready.

If you have enough slow cookers, say four or five, then you could slow cook a whole Sunday Roast.

Netto have incredible deals on at the moment, but other budget supermarkets are available.

Jimmy the Double has one, why don't you get one too?
