If you love your crock-pot, but hate the mess that comes with scrubbing hard-to-clean rings off, then try this little crock-pot tip! I can't take credit for it because I recall seeing it somewhere in a crock-pot recipe somewhere or another.
In addition to easy clean up, it's much cheaper than crock-pot liner bags. Why pay for expensive liners when
you can make your own crock-pot liners for a pennies! Plus, it's a not a one size fits all design like the store bought liners so you can line your crock-pot with the perfect fit, making sure all the edges are touching and your dish is cooking evenly.
How to Make Crock-Pot Liners:
Simply line your crock-pot with tin foil. Not hard, huh!
It only takes a piece of foil about 18-20 inches. I have a very large crock-pot and that's all it took. Simply center the foil over your crock-pot dish, press it down in the edges and PRESTO- It's done.
I did take the scissors and trim the edges off the top just to make it neater looking, plus cutting tin foil will sharpen your scissors so it was a 2-for-1 task! :) When your done cooking, simply pull it out and trash it!
Tah-dah! So easy a cave woman can do it! ;)
