September turned out to be full of sunshine and, in Scotland, we had better weather than we had had all summer! In saying all that, it has been chilly in the mornings and evenings so coming home to a slow cooked warming supper is definitely the order of the day.
We have a range of dishes to choose from in this month’s Slow Cooked Challenge starting with Blackberry Pulled Pork with Blackberry BBQ Sauce.
This unusual and creative dish comes to us from the heart of rural France, from the blog of De Tout Coeur Limousin, that sauce looks so good!
Next up a hearty plate of Slow Cooker Chipotle Chilli Beans provided by Sarah at Tales from the Kitchen Shed. I’m a sucker for chipotle chillies, so will be making this slow cooker casserole very soon.
Another vegetarian dish and one I think I may be making this week, as I have some portobello mushrooms that I didn’t use at the weekend. This dish of Slow Cooked Portobello Mushroom Stew with Herb Dumplings comes from the lovely Dominic who cooks up all kinds of treat at Belleau Kitchen.
Back to Tales from the Kitchen Shed for some more tasty treats. This time Sarah is serving up Spicy Courgette Chutney made in her Slow Cooker with a glut of courgettes.
