I prepared these in my little crockette. It was nice to use this crock for more than just keeping things warm! I did have to turn this off much sooner, since it was really thick at about 2 hours. I added a small can of crushed pineapple to mine instead of the chunks but next time I think I will hold off until I have the chunks as I think bigger bites of pineapple would be more tasty. Served this over rice and everyone enjoyed. Thank you.
