So we had these sweet potatoes, yes? So David peeled them and chopped them up and put them in the Crock with some apple cider and some brown sugar. Fantastic. Only the brown sugar, he realized after putting it in, smelled strange. Moldy. Weird. But they got cooked anyway. The potatoes ended up having a strange blackizh greenish color on the edges. We opted not to eat them, out of fear of intestinal retribution due to mold.
*sigh* I won't even tell you the sad story of what happened to those potato peels.
Another audition this morning. I did just alright, but was more fighting the Squeaky Voiced Teen in my voice than anything. It was with a company I really want to work with. I know that Everything Happens For A Reason And In Its Right Time and all that, and I'm trying to do my part in the process and keep momentum going. That damn theatre bug is a virulent one.
Sweet potatoes are prone to discoloring, in my experience. They might look a little funky, but they won't make you sick. It is usually on the edges that I have gotten discoloration. I think it might have to do with the heat that it gets compared to the rest of the chunk of tater, maybe oxidation? I don't know.
Sweet potatoes with apple cider and brown sugar sounds mighty yummy though, and chock full of vitamins. Lisa | 01.10.07 - 12:46 pm | #
I was just going to write what Lisa wrote. Don't worry about the discoloration. Also, you can just put the potatoes (sweet, white, red) in with their peels and basically bake them. I've also wrapped mine in alum. foil so that they turn out more like baked potatoes. I'm glad to hear that brown sugar can mold - never would have thought that.
As to the crockpot, I've learned through the years that basically anything you can bake in the oven you can cook in the cp - just takes a little longer. We do meatloaf, enchiladas, soups, stews, BBQ, cakes, squash (winter mainly), herb chicken w/rice or potatoes, chicken with cream soup and stuffing, steak with mushroom soup, - literally, anything and everything. I just love to be able to throw everything in there, plug it in, have school with my family and when John gets home, supper's ready. Google cp recipes, and you'll find lots of ideas there as well. (Ignore Lisa - the cp and breadmachine are great!! ) Prairie Momma | Homepage | 01.10.07 - 1:43 pm | #
