Of all the slow cookers, in all the towns, in all the world, this recipe was made in mine. I'm not sure how Moroccan this recipe really is (at least enough to rip off a Casablanca quote, apparently), but it's hardly worth researching once you taste it. I did fail to have on hand lemon juice, having used the last of it in some hummus a few days ago, so that part is missing. I'm guessing it would have helped to further balance the sweetness, which should have been easily predicted seeing the ingredient list. That being said, I personally like a little spice in these sorts of dishes, so I may just add some form of chile pepper, whether it be fresh or dried in my next preparation of this dish, which I believe will be much sooner than much later. Regardless of it's very few shortcomings, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship (couldn't help it).


This tastes great and is healthy with all the fruits and vegetables. I added a first layer of chopped sweet potatoes. Can't wait to make it again!


This is the first time I had a "tagine" dish and I looked at a lot of other similar recipes on other sites before I settled on this one -- mostly because of the convenience of a slow cooker. It was delicious. I substituted golden raisins instead of cranberries, since a lot of other recipes use that instead. I will be adding this to my recipe book.
