Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays because, for me, it’s synonymous with the start of summer. This weekend, I’m planning to go to the beach and, of course, barbecue. But even though we’ll be grilling meat and veggies, our slow cooker probably won’t get a break. I’ve come across a number of delicious, seasonal crock-pot sweets that would be perfect for serving at summer parties. Best of all, you can use blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries to create red, white and blue desserts–how perfect for Memorial Day or July 4th!
Slow Cooker Summer Fruit Compote: Warm summer fruit served over ice cream? Yes, please!
Slow Cooker Fruit Crumble: A delicious a la mode dish with the red, white and blue motif.
Slow Cooker Sour Cherry Rice Pudding: This recipe calls for dried cherries, but I’d like to try using fresh fruit.
