How To Make Jam Using Slow Cooker

Few weeks back we went for strawberry picking with our grand-kids and ended-up picking lot more strawberries than we would consume. How can you blame two very excited 5 year olds !

Two of my Hetzler 3-in-1 Berry Boxes did really good job of keeping strawberries in good shape for more than 2 weeks. They are great value for money. Since I have purchased them they have saved me so from so much wastage of berries. Anyways finally I needed to make some room in my freeze. So I ended up making some mix-fruit Jam with those freshly picked strawberries.

Just like my Mango Jam, I made this mix-fruit jam using slow cooker as well so no worries about stirring to make sure Jam is not sticking and not splatters of Jam all over the kitchen !

It was very simple to make Jam in crockpot. All I did was crushed the fruits and mixed them with sugar. Rest work was done by my slow-cooker !


Preparation Time 10 Minute
Cook Time 4 hours 20 Minute

Ingredients:
1. 2 cup shredded apple
2.1 cup pineapple puree
3. 1/2 cup strawberry puree
4. 1 cup pineapple  juice ( optional )
5. 2 1/4 cup sugar
6. 2 tbsp lemon ( lime ) juice

Method of making Jam in Crockpot:

1. Combine fruits and sugar in a slow cooker bowl and mix them well.

2. Set slow cooker on high. Make sure to not cover the slow cooker.
3. After about 4 hours mix the fruit puree well and churn it with hand-mixer.
4. Cook for another 20-30 minutes or so until desired consistency is reached.
5. Now transfer jam in a bowl and add lemon juice. Again mix it well.

6. After jam is completely cool, transfer it in a mason Jar.

Jam will be good in freeze at least 1 month in freezer for 6 months. Enjoy with these healthy eggless dinner rolls or with this eggless cinnamon raisin bread.

Slow Cooker Chocolate Cashew Cluster and Mother's Day Gift Idea

Some time back I had talked about homemade mother's day gift  ideas using slow cooker. Today I am posting one of the similar homemade mother's day gift - Chocolate Cashew Clusters. It is such a simple recipe. Takes only three ingredients. There is really no prep time - other than may be gathering these ingredients.

Cashew Clusters came out really good. I made some extra to share with neighbors and they loved it too.

Back to recipe for Chocolate Cashew Clusters:

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 1.5 Hours on High Setting

Ingredients:

1. 6 Oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (I used Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Morsels )
2. 1 Cup Broken Cashew Nuts
3. 1/2 Can Condense Milk

Method:

1. Layer cashew at the bottom of slow cooker.
2. Top it with Condense milk and then Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chip.
3. Cover slow cooker with a paper towel and then cover the lead. (Paper towel is used to make sure water does not drip in the cashew cluster)
4. Check every 30 minutes to make sure chocolates are melting fine.
5. After about hour and 30 minutes, chocolates should be well melted.
6. Now scoop one table spoon mixture at a time and place it on wax paper.

7. Let it dry overnight and Cashew Clusters should be ready to eat.
8. They will store well in refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.
