CrockPot Wed  Harvest Meal

CrockPot Wed Harvest Meal

[Applause] [Applause] so for our crock-pot Wednesday I peeled my sweet potatoes so I'm peeling these the day ahead of time and here is all of my peelings so I'm gonna take you out and I'll show you what I do with my peelings so what I really like to do is have a place for everything and everything in its place and this is my compost bin and this is where I put all of my peelings with its potatoes or sweet potatoes all right now I'm done now since the lid is on we're gonna spin it I try to spin it throughout the season buddy and welcome to crock-pot Wednesday and you find me in my kitchen today and today we have all natural lighting so I'm gonna see how this video works not having my artificial lights and just having it the whole natural way of making a video today we are going to make harvest ham supper now I don't cook with a lot of ham but I thought this looked like a really unique recipe and I always like trying different recipes and different wide range of foods and this is going to be a really good one it comes from this cookbook it's called the rebel crock-pot cookbook it's just a small little cookbook and I got it for half off it was 25 cents at the thrift store if I can find this cookbook I will share you a link in the description box hey that way you can see it as well also at the end of this video I will share with you the recipe and what I'm gonna do from now on is I'm going to scan the cookbook and that way you can see the recipe off of the cookbook so let's get started and let's make some harvest ham supper now this is going to take a while in the crock pot this is gonna take at least 8 hours so I'm working early this morning and this will be for supper usually our lunch is our main meal and our supper is a very light meal but today it's going to be a little different so it's 8:15 a.m. so let's get started so we have a crock pot right here alright so I'm going to turn the light on to show you all of this part of it so we have a crock pot right here and what it calls for is carrots sweet potatoes boneless ham and maple syrup to layer the crock pot so here's the crock pot and what we can do is we're going to put some sweet potatoes in the bottom I already peeled these I did all of my work the day before that way I don't have so much work to do the sweet potatoes are gonna take a while so we're gonna go ahead and put them on the bottom of it then we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna put carrots in it now the way the recipe is you're supposed to have the carrots cut this way which is very unusual so what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna cut it again these carrots I need to get used up and my mama always told me that you take some carrots and you have them in cold water with just a pinch of salt that way they will keep longer if these are carrots that need to get used up and that is how I store my older carrots you're just gonna hit go ahead and lay em this way it's exactly how the recipe calls for it slices of ham and this is Smithfield ham and it is I got the honey cured ham so we're going to put this ham up this would be a great recipe to take for a Thanksgiving meal because it has the carrots and the sweet potatoes and like I said this is gonna take quite a while to make because of the sweet potatoes being raw so I'm just gonna go ahead and I'm going to cut up the ham and cubes like this not too small but yet not so big so we're gonna just go like that they actually have the ham in full slices but I'm gonna put it in like this this is a really quick meal I know a lot of people do not eat ham and really we do not eat much ham at all as well but something like this looks good you can always omit the ham so if you want just a vegetarian dish you can always have it like that we're gonna bring out the rest of our sweet potatoes and put them on top so that is what it looks like so basically all we have is carrots sweet potatoes and ham now for the tree this is called shagbark syrup this is made by my friend Susan Sullivan she I bought this from her a long time ago and I don't have maple syrup but this is a good substitute for it so it's called shagbark syrup if you're interested in this and want to know more about it I will give you her email so you can email her very good it tastes like maple syrup and so this is what we're going to use so we're just going to pour that all on top it calls for a cup of it I put a little more than a cup of it because I wanted to use the rest of this up shagbark syrup something very new to me and I'm sure it's very new to most of you well there we go that is all we have to do to make this harvest ham supper I'll get back to you when it's suppertime and it's finished everyone it's all finished so one harvest supper is finished it is sweet potatoes that are really soft almost like mush and we have some carrots and we have some ham slices so let's give it a taste and see what we think mMmmm that is really good with that special on a substitute for a maple syrup and it's shagbark syrup so if you're interested in Sheinberg syrup but want to know what it is contact Susan Solomon and here is their email in my description box I'll give you a hint it comes from a tree take care everyone we'll see you guys tomorrow this is really good and let me show it to you real close so this is what it looks like real soft and tender give it a try it's something really unique but it's something that I'm going to be making many more times because it's delicious take everyone we'll see you guys tomorrow bye from the diary of my grandma fanny we're on December the 12th 1942 today daddy was cutting wood all day Marian and I went to mount ville for some shopping

  1. Hi Tessie! โ˜บ i just watched & enjoyed your video: CrockPot Wednesday, Harvest Meal. In reference to your trying to use natural lighting only, it was PERFECT!!!, Very, very, very Bright! That crockpot dinner looked delicious! ๐Ÿ˜› I could almost smell it. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ In reference to that "Rival" Crockpot cookbook, if I am not mistaken, "Rival" is a name brand of a Crockpot. Possibly, it may come with the purchase of their Crockpot. Happy Cooking, Composing & Videoing!!! โ˜บโ˜บ P.S. Your handmade snowpeople are ADORABLE!! โ˜บโ˜บ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

  2. Your kitchen puts mine to shame this morning ) : I got to do some redding up! Hope I pronounced that right.

  3. I found an interesting link on shag bark syrup. The recipe looks pretty easy once you have the shag bark:

  4. Shagbark syrup? Never heard of it, but I learned something new today ๐Ÿ™‚ To be honest even for maple syrup you have to visit a larger supermarket overhere, and believe it or not don't be suprised that most people don't know what it is or the use of it. But who knows in the future? After all the first time I saw sweet potatoes was in the late nineties. The good thing is that I have to work slightly more than a week and then I have 2 weeks Christmas Holiday. My first and last holiday this year, but time enough to try some recipes from the USA ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh btw is eating pork a kind of an issue, perhaps a stupid question but overhere it isn't a big issue (except for vegetarians, muslims and jews), but where I live they aren't that common.

  5. I wish your videos were longer ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I love to listen and watch and learn. ๐ŸŽ„โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŽ„

  6. Love crockpot meals! I like sweet potatoes but my husband doesn't. I'd have to make it for just me. Sometime I'll try it. Thanks for sharing!

  7. The lighting is great sis. Let me ask you sis where does that syrup come from is it tree or plant I never heard of this before. That looked simple and good I'm not big on ham either but I will give it a try……I've learned so many things from you this past year. You are a treasure and a very bright light on a very gloomy day. Stay strong let no one or no thing bring you down. God bless you and your family. I love you my sister

  8. Looks good sis! Hearty and warm! And it's hard to believe that syrup is made from the bark of.a hickory tree!!

  9. Yummy Tessie that looks really good I'm writing it down for my next potluck thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘

  10. This looks so good Tessie. I'm like you, I don't have ham often, but I would love this. We are having ham for Christmas, so I'll make this with the leftover ham. Yum! Love the tip on carrots. Mine go bad too often. Hugs Tessieโค๏ธ

  11. I wasnโ€™t sure about that dish when I seen the sweet potatoes and carrots but then when you added the ham and syrup it started looking better. But the end product, looked like it would be absolutely delicious. Makes my mouth water thinking about it. ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿ–yum yum.

  12. That looks like it would be a great meal I have to substitute the syrup cuz I'm a diabetic but that would be a great meal for 1

  13. Really good quick meal love sweet potato and ham though I could have it with out and make it all vegetarian as I don't have ham all that much just once in a while. Shag bark syrup makes it good It sure looks good. I have to get in touch with Susan and get some of that Shag bark syrup. I am enjoying the diary readings at the end something I will be doing is keeping a diary now. Been writing down my thoughts of the day on a pad funny I never kept my thoughts on paper much it think it will be good for me to write thoughts down. Almost done with my little trees they look good. I'll be doing a video with them soon. Have more decorating to do in the house. I remember the Christmas times we would have lots of company over. Every one would bring something to eat and lots more presents too. It was a fun time I enjoyed getting presents from everyone that came. I wanted it to last forever. Miss those days. Truly a wonderful time. We had a white Christmas as there was fresh snow in the morning just like in the movie. Love you my sister:)
