This is a simple recipe that is simply delicious. I was doubtful the first time I heard about this recipe that it would actually work, but work it does and let me tell you, it is a real treat...both to taste, and for the fact that you don't really have to do anything to prepare it other than through a few ingredients in a slow cooker.
This would be perfect for a casual holiday gathering or maybe even Christmas Eve. Heck, you could also break it out in January to warm up from a cold winter's day.
