4 Natural Slow Cooker Recipes Boasting Flavor & Nutrition

September 26, 2018

Fall is undoubtedly slow cooker season. Farmers experience peak harvests and, as the days get shorter and temperatures get lower, we long for comfort and convenience in our meals. The slow cooker can churn out hearty dishes with ease, so there’s really no need to cut corners and fill them with processed ingredients. If you start with natural, high quality products, sourced locally and responsibly, the end result is most satisfying. It offers the best of both worlds - maximum flavor and nutrition. You can begin enjoying slow cooker comfort this season by using the 4 recipes below but don’t hesitate to branch out and swap Dutch Meadows products into any of your personal favorite recipes to ensure your health and appetite needs are met.
