    Your ham broth would probably make a nice soup with cabbage, onions & celery

    Yep, these cookers are great!
    Not much they can not do.
    I'm in Baton Rouge Louisiana and the Red Beans are cooking.
    Throw a chunk of Pork Tasso in there and serve over rice, Yum!

    I've wanted one for a while, but since my slow cooker still works I kept putting it off. But is top of the list now.
    I was wondering about using it in the van, but was concerned with the power draw. How have you been using yours in the van? Do you know the power draw it uses?

    They sell a 12 volt crock-pot at the truck stops. Don't know how good it works.

    Don't waste your money on those things...
    Unless you want to wait forever to cook 2 cups of anything.
    Is it done yet... Nope!

    Just ran out of half & half for my coffee so I used MrsWornOut's "sugar free" creamer. Checked my glucose and up to 380. Double checked the creamer and it is sugar free EXCEPT the #2 ingredient is corn syrup

    Yup, those "sugar free" options are a nice marketing joke
