Slow Cooker Stew

This recipe looks worth a try although I don’t know about the raisins and cinnamon.

I scanned it because of the quotes around time.

What do you think that’s all about?

    I think that small amount of raisins would disintegrate and maybe their little sweetness would take the tart off the vinegar and red wine?

    I have a slow cooker and I do use it in the Winter but I am paranoid or don’t fully trust it not to malfunction. I only use it when I am home and don’t leave. I am so afraid it will have a mind of its own and go from simmer to 650F and boil dry and burn the place down.

    I know I am afraid for no reason…

    The raisins and cinnamon are Mediterranean-ish enough to justify the recipe’s title and I think you’d miss them if they weren’t there. I’ve been doing a lot of stir-fries recently and have become hyper-aware of the balance between sweet, salt, spice, and umami. I suspect that balance is what these small amounts of sweet and spice are all about.
