24 Hour Crock Pot Recipes for Krishna

Ingredients (serves 1-4 people):
2 cups white navy beans
1 cup red kidney beans
1/4 cup corn kernels
1/4 cup whole grain red or brown rice
1/4 cup peanuts without shell
1/4 cup soybeans
4-5 quart slow cooker

For this recipe, you will need a slow cooker with Low/High or Low/High/Auto settings. First, place all of the above ingredients together in a pail of water and let it soak for 8-12 hours. Then pour it all in a strainer and rinse it off. Now pour all of the ingredients into a 4-5 quart or larger slow cooker and completely fill the slow cooker with water. Place your slow cooker on the HIGH setting only and leave it for 24 hours. Do NOT use the LOW setting for this recipe, as there have been stories of red kidney bean poisoning that resulted from slow cookers that were operating on Low at about 80 degrees C which increases the poison in red kidney beans. It is safe, however, at 100 degrees C. You can test the water temperature with a thermometer to make sure it is 100 degrees C. Leave the slow cooker on High (100 degrees C) for 24 hours and chant your japa. You should not have to add any water and the slow cooker can be left unattended for the entire 24 hour period. It is normal for a good portion of water to gradually steam off over 24 hours, and you should not need to add any water during this period. Turn off the slow cooker and let it cool a bit. Strain off the water, offer a portion to Bhagavan Sri Krishna and serve.
