Browning Adds Flavor! If you have time, browning ingredients adds flavor to your finished slow cooker dish. Simply sauté meat or vegetables in your InstaPot or slow cooker with a little olive oil until the pieces are lightly browned on all sides. This can also be done ahead of time—just refrigerate your ingredients until you’re ready to slow cook.

Rich golden color, honey and apricots and a rich mouth feel make this a perfect pairing for spicy food. With this bottle, you’ll be drinking “Gewurtz”, (guh-vurt-struh-mee-nr), from its homeland of France. The area between France and Germany, Alsace, still grows the most of this spicy, aromatic grape. You can also find good examples from California, Oregon, the Finger Lakes of NY and Washington State.
