Welcome to Slow Cooker Week! We’re sharing all our favorite Crock Pot recipes, tips, tricks, and advice this week—and including the Instant Pot, of course, since it slow cooks too. Here, we’re getting meta and looking at cooking with pot in a slow cooker (by any other name…).

You already knew that the humble, but beloved Crock-Pot can cook food low and slow, just in time for your dinner, tailgate, chili cook-off, or holiday party. In fact, the Crock-Pot has such a solid reputation for slow cooking everybody’s favorite comfort foods, that one could easily take for granted a few more tricks under its lid.

Seriously, did you know, in fact, you could, theoretically, be cooking with pot in the Crock-Pot, right now? File these away for 4/20 or start experimenting now (if it’s legal where you are, that is). Here’s a list of pot in the Crock-Pot recipes to get you started.

ABV Coconut Oil


Want to get twice the use out of your weed?
