Crockpot Lid Unveiled

This is what was stewing in the crockpot – abalones. These are not canned abalones but dried abalones and are supposed to cost way more than canned ones. How did my mil cook the abalones? First, she soaked the abalones for a few days in the fridge. Then, she put the abalones into the crockpot and cook them overnight on slow heat for more than 24 hours. When the abalones were tender enough, she removed them from the crockpot and sliced them. She had wanted to cook a sauce for the abalones but since she was busy, we just ate them plain – with no salt or seasoning and they tasted good. But I am not a great fan of abalones, my hubby is.
