Finally it's Spring ! lighter days make my soul shine , it's been a mild winter . We are just chalking up to double digits in the temperature stakes which I'm loving. I've even got the outdoor furniture out but the next day it rained ! There has been more good days than bad ones and even then I've my beloved cup of tea . I think tea must be one of the words that I use most often and I get very cranky if I can;t have a cup of tea , I do take my favourite tea bags abroad with me.
You might think that a slow cooker is just for Winter but I don't think it is , a slow cooker is a brilliant helping hand in the kitchen , especially useful for the days when we are busy running around here there and everywhere.
Pack of small sweet potatoes
In your slow cooker pour in about 3 cups of hot water.
2 Tablespoons of brown sugar
A joint of Gammon
Switch the slow cooker on low and least for at least 6 hours .
Make sure the water covers the sweet potatoes, I used a pack of small sweet potatoes.
You'll find that sweet potatoes have held together.
Prepare the additional vegetables that you want to accompany your meal .
Once everything is ready switch the slow cooker off
Carve the gammon
And then plate everything up .
