OK all you wise DG people. I'm going to make candied sweet potatoes in my crock pot for lunch tomorrow. The recipes says cook on high for 4 hrs. To avoid turning it on at 4:30am!!! (because I have to leave my house at 8:30) can I cook it on low for 8 hrs? Or should I cook it today sometime and warm it back up? If I choose the later, do I keep it in the crock pot the whole time? I mean to re-warm it? And what temp to re-warm? I know someone out there will have the answer to my question! Thanks!!

Homers, I'd go with low anyway; most newer crockpots are very hot on the high setting. Sorry this didn't get to you in time to be much help, though!

I'd warm it up in an oven and make sure that it was hot all the way through, if I had to reheat it after a day. I assume you'd be refrigerating it in the meantime, though.

thanks greenhouse gal. I went ahead and cooked it 2 hrs at home on hi and 2 hrs at my destination on hi and it turned out just fine! You are right, though-on hi it was boiling and very hot for a long time after I turned it off!
