Happy New Year and the first Slow Cooked Challenge of 2015

It's been a year since I got my Slow Cooker for Christmas in 2014 and launched this challenge to learn more about slow cooking and share recipes with other slow cooking fans. So if you got a Slow Cooker as a gift or nabbed one in the sales, please do join in the rules are simple:

January 2015 Theme: Citrus

  • Make your recipe in your Slow Cooker or use other slow cooking method and post a photograph and the recipe, or a link to a recipe, on your blog
  • Link to Farmersgirl Kitchen
  • Use the Slow Cooked Challenge logo in your post
  • If you use twitter, tweet your post with @FarmersgirlCook and #SlowCookedChallenge and I will re-tweet it to my followers AND post your picture on the dedicated Pinterest Board. 
  • Please do not publish recipes from cookbooks on your blog without permission, they are copyright.
  • If you are using recipes from another website, please link to the recipe on the website rather than publishing the recipe.
  • One entry per blog.
  • Recipes must be added to the linky by the 28th of each month.
For inspiration and links to lots of Slow Cooked dishes check out the Slow Cooked Challenge page. 

Here are a few slow cooked citrus dishes to inspire you: 
Sticky Marmalade Chicken from Lavender and Lovage
Chicken Tagine with Preserved Lemons from Farmersgirl Kitchen
Slow Cooker Pork and Orange from Jibber Jabber
Carrot Almond and Lemon Chutney from Strong as Soup
Slow Cooker Lemon and Blackberry Cake from Baking Queen 74

Happy New Year Janice! I've just been through all my slow cooker recipes and couldn't find one with as much a squeeze of lemon juice or a smattering of lime zest! Will try to get something appropriate knocked up in January :)

Just googled, Jane and lots of chicken and orange, beef and orange, chicken and marmalade.

Happy New Year Janice! Looks like the slow cooker challenge was a real winner last year, looking forward to seeing it continue for another year and hopefully I'll get round to joining in at some point!

Happy New Year Janice and I am going to try to be VERY slow this January with citrus! Karen

I've posted some inspiration in the text now Janie, hopefully you will be able to adapt a recipe to the slow cooker with a zesty flavour!

At 4 January 2015 at 14:32 , Blogger Janice said...

Thanks Jen, I've had a steady flow of recipes each month. Please join in if you have the time.

Glad you hear you are going to take it easy, Karen. Thanks for your ongoing support for the Slow Cooked Challenge :-)

Great ideas here, I am going to try to use my slow cooker more this year!

Well I am trying to create a bit more space on my kitchen top - it may take a while, but when I do that slow cooker is going to come out and see the light of day. Not sure I'll manage it this month, but you never know! Zesty sounds good to me.

At 4 January 2015 at 19:47 , Blogger Choclette said...

Oh and Happy New Year Janice - may your house be cosy and structurally sound.

At 4 January 2015 at 20:00 , Blogger Janice said...

Whenever you are ready, you will be very welcome.

At 4 January 2015 at 20:02 , Blogger Janice said...

Thank you, I'm certainly hoping for a better year!

I've just blogged three new Slow Cooker recipes but none of them contain Citrus. Doh!

At 14 January 2015 at 21:42 , Blogger Lucy Bakingqueen74 said...

Great theme Janice, something zesty coming vp from me very soon! thanks for linking to my lemon and blackberry cake.

At 21 January 2015 at 08:12 , Blogger Unknown said...

I can't believe I've only just discovered this. I love my slow cooker and don't use it half as much as I should, so this is going to be my inspiration! Thanks

At 21 January 2015 at 19:26 , Blogger Janice said...

aw never mind, there's still 7 days left!

At 21 January 2015 at 19:26 , Blogger Janice said...

Look forward to it Lucy, you make such lovely dishes.

At 21 January 2015 at 19:27 , Blogger Janice said...

Yay! This is the challenge for you Ellen, I've learned loads in the last year from all the talented slow cooks out there. Look forward to having you join us.
