"This recipe was originally posted on scholasticdotcom. Luckily I saved it elsewhere because the link is now broken. It was originally designed for baking in the oven but I combined it with a different recipe that uses the slow cooker and it works perfect! You could call this more of a technique than a recipe because the ingredients are very flexible."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Combine the ingredients in the crock pot set on "high". Mine is the large size (6 qt) so not sure how this would work with a smaller crock. Don't cover with the lid. You can set the lid cocked so steam will escape to start with. Stir after 30 minutes and remove lid then keep an eye on it. Continue to stir every 15 minutes or so. It is supposed to take 2 hrs but I would watch it closely after the first hour. Once it starts to brown, it can burn quickly!

Step 2

Allow to cool and then add dried fruit if desired. After COMPLETELY cool, store in an airtight container.

Step 3

(Substitutions are endless... for butter you could use coconut oil. I have already mentioned honey and maple syrup, you could probably try brown sugar. Obviously the ginger could be replaced with cinnamon or more spices can be added. Have fun!)
