Author's Comments

Each slow cooker is a little different from the others, so you may have to adjust the amount of water needed. For added flavor sprinkle a bit of nutmeg, mace or cinnamon, in any combination. Try brown rice, barley, rye berries, whole oats, or wheat berries. Cracked grains, such as oatmeal or cracked wheat, may get too mushy for some tastes.
