Double the Fun, Not the Time


I am planning on doubling one of my slow cooker recipes. In the recipe, it says to thicken with cornstarch on high for a half an hour. I'm wondering, will I have to double that time in order to get the correct consistancy? Also, will I have to increase any other cooking times? Thanks in advanced.

Hi Stephanie,

You should not have to double the cooking time. As long as your crockpot isn't overflowing, everything should work out great. Often, I find it's easier to pour the juices from the slow-cooker and thicken them in a saucepan on the stove. It only takes 5-10 minutes, vs. the 30-60 minutes in the slow-cooker. Either way, you should get great results!
