Congee?

I was wondering if it's possible to make congee in a crock, and if anyone knew of any incredibly tasty recipies for it. I really have no idea how to make congee, but when I had it last, it had pork and preserved eggs sliced into it.

I've made it in the crock with one cup brown rice to 5-6 cups water and salt to taste. Sometimes, when feeling sassy, I'll cut one yellow onion in chunks and cook it all together, then sprinkle nutritional yeast over each serving when it's done.

Super simple, but it's one of those things I crave when I'm sick!

Although I can't vouch for the recipes, google seems to think you can make it in your crock pot.

Oh yes, it's very easy. I use about 1 cup jasmine rice to 7 cups water or chicken broth, then cook on high overnight. If it's too thick, you can always add more liquid.

Then before serving, you can stir in a tsp. or so of sesame oil, 2-3 chopped scallions, soy sauce and fresh ground pepper to taste.

I haven't made it in a crockpot before but just to let you know - you can make it with turkey leftovers... or even pumpkin!

Congee is very forgiving, so unless you burn it there are thousands of variations you can go for. I like to throw a big soup bone or similar in with it while it's cooking, makes it much more savory. Every year after thanksgiving i make a giant pot of congee (we call it juk) with the turkey carcass, plenty of white pepper and some crushed up fermented tofu. Then i put those crunchy fried onions from the green bean casserole on top. mmm

I did the same last year with my turkey carcass :-) My family LOVED the homemade juk... This year, I imagine the baby will love it as well...
