Cotes du Rhone £3.89. - Bargain!
Wine at less than 4 let alone 5 pounds? Sounds too good to be true!
It almost is. Great for cooking with and also keeping the cook fortified whilst they are cooking, a deep red and not very fruity, it is also a good sipping wine for lazy weekday nights in front of the T.V.
I have had a slow cooker for about 5 years now and couldn't do without it! As well as making tasty, healthy meals they can be bought for as little as £10 and are cheap to run, using minimal electricity.
As they cook food long and slow, cheaper cuts of meat can be used as well as vegetables that may be past their prime, and you will still have a tender, tasty meal.
The ability to leave the cooker unattended for a long time is also useful, meaning you can go out during the day and then come home to a fresh cooked, hot and tasty meal.
