Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

 

Crockpot Rice Pudding With Fruit


desserts, fruits, crockpot

1/2 gal milk; * see note
1 cup rice
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoon margarine; solid
1/4 teaspoon salt; optional
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup dried apricots or peaches; m
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

and half whole milk, or all nonfat for lower fat content. Substitute canned milk for the regular milk for a very rich flavor. The cooking time will vary greatly, anywhere from 1-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours. The longer it cooks the thicker it will be. It is important to have the dried apricots minced. Put all ingredients into crockpot. Stir to blend well. Cover and cook on high 1- 1/2 hours, stir once after about 1 hour. Or, cook on high for the first 30 minutes, turn to low and cook as long as you desire. Check after the first 2 hours of low cooking and stir. If rice is not absorbing the milk quickly enough, turn the crockpot up to high again. Keep cover on at all times. Crockpot temperatures vary widely among different brands. Only experimentation can tell you the correct amount of time for cooking in your crockpot. Rarely will a crockpot recipe fail, though, as the long, slow cooking process does not require precise timing.
