I like the rice cooker accessory that came with it, it cooks perfect rice every time.

I don’t have that but I do have a metal ball you put in boiling water. That works well. I normally have brown rice though which stays firm!

That's clever.  But am not sure about the recipe...sounds like a boyscout jamboree dish.

I'll try that again!

In the slow cooker this morning

chopped onion, potato and garlic, tin of chopped tomatoes, veg stock cube, the red kidney beans waiting in a bowl in the fridge and some Jamaican  jerk seasoning. Smells good and will be enjoyed soon!

If you add half a teaspoon of sugar, the tomatoes lose the tinned taste.

Thanks for that although I have never noticed a tin taste. Might be due to all the garlic and herbs I add 😀

Always looking to save a penny, the local Coop had a huge reduction on gammon in treacle and ale sauce. Just the job for a salad I thought as the weather was nice.
All was well as I prepared the tomatoes, celery, cos lettuce. beetroot and baby potatoes until I began carving the gammon. A bit on the tough side! Then  I noticed on the packaging the words in very small print....Oven bake for 1hr 30 minutes.

Next, freeze the gammon then add boiled egg, cheese and pickle to the salad served with baguette.
