So John Willoughby's article in todays NYT about Maine bean holes got me thinking - as I'm about to lose my ktchen to a renovation - about applying those recipes to a slow cooker. Anyone have any good tips about how to convert recipes from oven or stove top to slow cooker?

        Native Americans baked their beans by cooking them in a pot in a hole in the ground. Here's a recipe:

          Yikes! No desire to cook beans that way! *Hugs slow cooker and pressure cooker*
