simmer define in a recipe
something just occurred to me....if we have to adjust the setting on the stove to get the ingred. in the pan to simmering ,than how does a slow cooker adjust to it,(yes i know it has a high and low) but if it takes us time to fiddle on the stove to get to a simmer....than how does slow cooker do it? Sorry if this is dumb to advance cookers,but i don't get it. Also, on the dial on a stove it has simmer by low if i put any thing on there it just keeps it warm,why do they put it on there,bec. i cant use it for nothing but warming stuff. NOT talking about simmer burner,but simmer on the dial of low,medium and high. I hate to take up your time on this but i don't know or have a brain fog going on. thanks ahead of time.
