They could actually cook enough to "disappear" into the liquids. Which I like at times. I make a pork roast with yams and sometimes the yams become part of the gravy -- adds a sweetness.

If you want them to remain solid, you could try what I do with green beans. Pre-cook them and add them in the final hour.

I would add the celery and carrots with the onions at the beginning. They will add nice flavour. I think the carrots being soft would be good eating and better than having a bit of a bite to them. The recipe sounds good. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Overcooked is better than undercooked for carrots in this recipe. I'd say add large chunks of carrots towards the beginning, maybe wait two hours if you penny them. If you add them just before the biscuits, they should be finely diced.

I'm not sure about celery, I'd say small pieces maybe an hour or two before the biscuits.

Good luck and take notes. You should have it perfect by the third try.

Hi guys..I am planning on making this recipe in the slow cooker: blueskiescooking.blogspot.com/2011/07/croc
k-pot-chicken-dumplings.html


I would like to add carrots and celery...any ideas on the timing, can they go in with everything else at the start? I just don't want them to be over or undercooked which I think can sometimes happen with slow-cookers? I am new to crock pots..this will be my 2nd thing to make! :)
