Next, I'm going to try apple butter!
I confess that even though I have that nice new Crockpot, yesterday I used my old Sam's Club porcelain cast iron Dutch oven to braise a small pork shoulder for pulled pork sandwiches. I still like being able to control the cooking time and temperature using the oven.
