Slow Cooked Challenge April 2016 Roundup

Slow Cooked Challenge April 2016 Roundup

The beginning of May already and the trees are growing their leaves, tulips are in full bloom, yet the weather here at least is still decidedly chilly. It hasn’t really occurred to me to stop using my slow cookers yet, due to the cold winds and rain, and I am sure to continue using them for a while yet. With the seven great entries into April’s Slow Cooked Challenge, you have plenty of slow cooked recipes featuring Spring Ingredients to keep you going. The Slow Cooked Challenge features recipes made using any slow cooking method, and we have a lovely array of different and exciting dishes this month.
