Welcome to TheCrockery

Greetings, citizens of Earth!

Welcome to the Crockery, home to the random and erratic thoughts of Teresa, sometimes known as The_Spacemouse. This blog will contain posts on religion, literature and movies- and cooking. (I am, after all, a woman.) This blog is cheerfully misnamed, mostly because I like the sound of the word "crockery." Although the blog will not, in fact, focus on crockpot cookery, there will be occasional recipes shared here, such as the one below. (Please do try this at home!)

The second meaning of the word "crockery" stems from a quaint expression regarding an unpleasant situation being a crock of something-I-will-not-here-name. Here at the Crockery, I firmly hold to the belief that "All the world's a crock," but I will leave it to you to decide what that crock contains. Lunchmeat? Peaches? Unpleasant waste?

To begin, I'd like to share The World's Greatest Cider Recipe, adapted by me from Better Homes and Gardens' Five Ingredient Slow Cooking cookbook.

Sweet Apple Cider

2 1/2 quarts of apple cider (10 cups)
1/3 cup brown sugar or honey (we used brown sugar)
2-3 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. cloves

Put in a 3-4 quart crockpot and cook on high for 2 1/2 - 3 hours, or on low for 5-6. You can also cook it on high for 2 hours, then switch to low for as long as you want. This way the cider is sure to be ready when needed, but there's no need to hurry to consume it.

It's been ages since I had cider. I'm looking forward to trying this. I'll be back to see what you do with the blog.
