All Hail the 2016 Slow Cooked Challenge

The Slow Cooked Challenge


Did you get a Slow Cooker for Christmas?  Or pick one up in the sales?  If so, we’d love you to join us for the Slow Cooked Challenge, the monthly blogging challenge where we welcome beginners and slow cooking experts alike.  But don’t worry you don’t need a slow cooker to take part, any dish cooked slowly can be added to the link up, see below for full details.

Many thanks to Lucy at Baking Queen 74 for the December Slow Cooked Challenge Round Up, and thanks to all who shared your delicious festive recipes.

As it’s January and I’m still enjoying my break from work, I haven’t yet made a recipe to share with you, so this month will have an OPEN theme, anything goes as long as it is slowly cooked.   Here are some slow cooked dishes from Farmersgirl Kitchen:

What a lovely roundup. I’m particularly taken by those gingered figs. They just look so sticky and delicious, my mouth is watering. Mmm…
