Doug, would you advise against dropping a cup or two of apple cider in this next batch of simmering turkey/venison soup?

I'm seeing now that volume is an issue. What kind of heat distribution would I need in a bigger pot on a stove to simmer this batch+two cups of cider for the next few hours? My crock is, oh, maybe two and a half gallons and full.

just keep it on low heat for awhile..I'm assuming you're putting it into the crock after to cook for a number of hours?

if you want it cooked fully, turn to high heat on the crock for the next 4 hours...it may not be complete though in that time frame

Essentially, everything is going according to plan except that, on a whim, I now want to add some cider.

take some of the liquid out of the crock and add the cider...you have mason jars to help in such an ordeal

no worries..that liquid can actually cool in a pint glass and be consumed much like a beer or a pint of gravy

I just learned why a kitchen without a funnel is no kitchen at all.

Regardless, no I don't have a plastic bottle. Even if I did, the mouth of this jar is wider than your standard bottle.

I dig a guy with mason jars

I'll gladly leave a bottle at a secret location in H-town for the Mrs. if you'd like. Just let me know.


we appreciate that but we have plenty of mason jars..the mrs. lands at LAX in 1 hour..i've started happy hour at home by myself

You don't pick up your gal at the airport after she's been gone?
