  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 1-1/2 cups water

Preparation

  9. Before serving, turn Crock-Pot on high. Mix remaining 4 tablespoons flour with 1/2 cup water. Stir into Crock-Pot to thicken stew.

Helpful hints

  • Potatoes are very high in potassium but you can remove part of the potassium by using one of these methods:
  • Double cook method: Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Drain the water and add fresh water to the pot. Bring to a boil, cook for 10 minutes then drain and set aside.
  • Leaching method:  Peel and dice potatoes. Place in a large pot of warm tap water and soak for 2 to 4 hours. Drain and set aside.
  • If you are not on a potassium restricted diet you can skip the above step.
