    I’m not an expert but I think it’s baked not cooked in a slow cooker.

    Plenty of rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper, and just a tiny wee splash of pommo ;-)

    Then also,

    Love it, just roasted slowly, then done, warmed up, still on the bone, with lentils, onions and garlic, good job we have just had our pumpkin farcie for din, or I would be drooling, not a pretty sight at all at midnight :-(

    That’s my kind of cooking, quick, easy and melt-in-the-mouth,as well as economical on the electric.  :good:

    Thanks for the link, Vic, just read it and am tempted, particularly as I don’t like cooking but would like to give a hand in the kitchen from time to time. Seems an ideal solution.

    Slow cookers are a boon if your busy all day and want something hot when you get home etc. Just sling in meat etc plus onions veg or whatever herbs, pour on Hot stock and put on high to get up to simmer.Then reduce to slow and cook all day or night and then get in and you have a good meal in minutes! No hassle! :rose:

    Make sure you cook it right through, apparently Danish pigs are riddled with a pig form of MRSA, its now been found in some British pigs, no doubt its here there and everywhere, harmful to humans, no idea.

    I didn’t like cooking until I tried it & found I was actually quite good at it. It’s a bit like practical engineering which suits me as I love finding out why things work. Try it, you never know. you may come to like it.

    Re the slow cookers :- Eric le Sausages free ribs with a dry spicy rub are the DB’s , his sausages with all the other bits make an excellent Ragout de Choux with no great skill needed whilst his roasting pork done slowly makes a great Pulled Pork meal if I’m feeling really pretentious :whistle:

    Thanks for all your replies. I have not had much luck with pork. Chops etc always turn out too dry. That’s why I thought slow cooker would be worth a try.

    Vic your baking looks scrumptious. Well done !

    Main reason I made bread on the boat BV, was, there wasn’t a baker for up to 1,500mls ,

    There is a good one round the corner here, her bread is better than mine ever will be :-)

    I think, because I’ve never done it, you can make up a yeast like mix called  a ‘mother starter’ with flour and water leave it for a couple of days to get going, then you can use a bit of it to make a loaf, feed the starter with more flour and water, and I’ve read some go on for years!  :rose:

    Alteratively just bung all of the dough ingrediants in a bread maker, let it do the hard work kneading bit, then take out the dough to prove & shape  by hand before cooking. Works for me if I don’t want a bog standard sandwich loaf.
