CrockPot Breakfast Risotto

I love risotto. I was very pleased with the crockpot risotto I made earlier in the year---it was cheesy and creamy and delicious. I think I just drooled a little, remembering. I was excited when I thumbed through a little Crock-Pot recipe card book that I got at the grocery store to see that there was a Breakfast Risotto recipe listed, and that I had all of the necessary ingredients in the house. I followed the recipe, with a few tweaks. The Ingredients. --1/4 cup butter--3 little apples (I had 2 greens, and 1 red in the house)--1 1/2 t cinnamon--1/8 t nutmeg--1/8 t cloves--1/4 t kosher salt--1 1/2 cups arborio rice--1/3 cup brown sugar-- 4 cups of liquid.

The Directions. I used a 4 qt round crockpot for this dish. Turn your crock to high and add the butter so it can start melting. Add the rice to the butter, and stir it around to coat it nicely. Add the apples, and spices. Cover and cook on high for 3-5 hours, or on low for 6 or so. The Verdict. Oh my. It was creamy and delicious. Product of Canada or not « Incredible Visions.

For example, companies can label their juice Canadian by adding water to imported fruit concentrate and bottling the product. I would like to know where my food comes from, not where the most money was spent on processing the food. Whatever the reason, the origin of one’s food should not be a mystery.

I do not think that we will be seeing any solutions from governments or manufacturers.
