I haven't tried it yet but I will this week and then post what we thought. If you try it - let me know what you think! My mom is a Cancer surviver and Diabetic (recovered!) so I am including her substitutions for all you health conscious folks out there!
Apple Bean Bake - in the Crock-pot!
4 Tbsp. butter (Mom just sprayed with Pam)
2 large apples, cubed with peel on but without core
1/2 c. brown sugar (Mom used brown sugar splenda)
1/4 c. sugar (Mom used white splenda)
1/2 c. ketchup
1 tsp. cinnamon (don't skimp)
1 Tbsp. molasses
3 large cans of beans, 19 ounce, (mix them up) Mom used black, chickpeas and romano (pinto would be American equivalent).
Can also put in ham.
Melt butter in skillet. Add apples and cook till tender.
Stir in sugars, Cook till melted. Stir in ketchup, cinnamon, molasses
Add beans and ham. Mix well. Pour into slow cooker and cook on high
2-4 hours. (Mom cooked hers on low for 6 hours.)
If you have the Fix-it and Forget-it book,
Feasting with your slow cooker, it is on page 219.
