Successful Slow Cooking
• No stirring is required.
• The stoneware should be two-thirds full for best cooking results.
• Any recipe can be cooked on either high or low; cooking time will vary.
• The best size for one or two people is a 3- to 4-quart slow cooker; for three or four people a 3 1/2 - to 4-quart slow cooker, and for five to seven people a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker.
• Try to use fresh herbs and spices. They take longer to release their flavor than dried herbs and spices and are better equipped to withstand extended cooking times
