I'm submitting this recipe on request. I found this in the Chicago-Sun Times in an article about dishwasher cooking. I haven't tried this (my dishwasher is my husband and though he's hot, he's not hot enough to cook carrots). The author suggests using foil bags since you'll only have one seam to seal. He even states that you can cook this along with dirty dishes, using soap but I don't think I'd try that! I'm guessing at the cook time, since it would be how long your dishwasher takes to run a load :) I'm putting this in the 'dinner party' category because I think it would be a fun recipe to try when you have guests!
