  5. Add the pump­kin, sweet pota­toes and raisins—add a bit more salt to taste if desired, and stir.
  6. Re-cov­er and con­tin­ue to crock on HIGH around 2 more hours, or until veg­eta­bles are quite soft.
  7. Last add the kale and bare­ly stir.
  8. Let the kale wilt, and fin­ish by adding apple cider vine­gar to taste.
  9. Sea­son with more salt and pep­per, if desired.

Step 7 says to add kale and bare­ly, after read­ing the ingre­di­ents a few more times I did not see bare­ly, did you mean raisins? I am going to add the raisins here and see how that works.

This hit the spot! I was look­ing for some­thing full of fiber and valu­able nutri­ents and that also tast­ed good, and this is the tick­et!


Would but­ter­nut squash work if I can’t find sug­ar pump­kins? (I live in Hawaii, we are lim­it­ed) 😉
