Recipe Expert Tips

  • Stop cut potatoes from browning: As you peel and dice the potatoes but them in a bowl of cold water. Rinse the water a couple of times before adding the potatoes to the slow cooker.
  • Cutting onions: Dice the onion last, after you have prepped all of the other vegetables this will help cut back on the tearing of your eyes.
  • What size crock pot?: I prefer cooking all of my crock pot soup recipes in a large 8 quart crock pot. The food will heat up faster in the larger crock pot.
