Pensioners love 'em (no peeling)

Ahhh! You are clever, Scarlet, I never thought about that?
Ohhh Squirrels! but I can't peel potatoes either? I'll settle for a Baked Spud before I have to open a can!

Damnits! Cannot beat a baked spud Suzy! - Also you can at least buy pre-prepared Spuds. Most Pensioners would be horrified at the thought!

Even microwaved spuds would be better than tinned. Like tinned carrots--ugh. I'd just as soon swallow a goldfish.

Actually I really do love a microwaved Spud, Orinoco - and I also like to eat the skin too, as it's very nutritious and tasty.
I am always amazed when I go out though, at how many plates I will see left on cafe tables with the best bit of the Spud (in my humble opinion) uneaten?

So, which one are you and Scarlet? - skin on? or skin off kind of girls???

And my tinned bug-bears are - Mushrooms (*shudder*), and Sweetcorn (tinning it makes it just nasty!)

Pensioner Finny here! Have to own up and say I think I do have a tin of spuds lurking on my boat, together with a tin of sweetcorn. The pot's are there for emergency use unless the mice have sharp enough teeth to open the can and scoff them? The sweetcorn, however, are there because I like 'em!
Do like a jacket myself, but prefer the skin crispy, so, bung 'em in the microwave for a few min's to soften and then crisp them off in the usual way.

I was brought up on cans of tinned sweetcorn, finny, so perhaps that's why the thought of it now makes me want to bring them up?!! - LOL!!! I do love frozen though.

And I hate to worry you but I did hear that your mice got one of these from Father Christmas this year?!!

Love it! Or, maybe not - especially if they use it to open my Heinz Tomato Soup!!! My favourite......

In reply to an earlier post on 28 Dec 2012 15:33:45 GMT
Me too! - I have it at least 3 times a week! :o>

I would recommend going for a multi cooker that has a slow cook facility. I have a 9 in 1 and it's great. I can fry off the meat and veg first then just put it to slow cook. I can also do rice and boil veg in it.

What do the other 8 functions do? Sounds interesting - can you post a link, pse?

You must cut all veg, including potatoes very small and put them in the base or they wont cook. Veg cook much slower than meat. A basic book should help.

We use a slow cooker a lot ........stews mostly & also add small waxy potatoes which stay whole & cook well. We also often use a jar of 'weightwatchers' cook-in sauce for a change & love it......particularly the mozzerella & herb's lovely with cubed lamb.
