During slow cooking liquids do not boil away. Begin with a small amount of

liquid and add more during the cooking process when needed. If there is too

much liquid at the end of the cooking process, set the slow cooker to “hi” high.

Cook on this setting to reduce the amount of liquid.

For better flavor do not crush or ground herbs and spices.

Meats with a high fat percentage can influence the flavor of the dish. Browning

or precooking can reduce the fat.

Cut foods into smaller pieces. They will cook faster than foods left whole.

Some vegetables require a longer cooking time. Place vegetables like potatoes,

carrots or beets on the bottom of the pot. Cover with liquid.

Add pre-cooked rice or pasta only at the end of the cooking process.
