Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
I've never been able to get my lentils to soften. Finally read other sites that said hard water and acidity (i.e. tomoatoes) can affect the cooking. After 3 hrs & still crunchy lentils, I dissolved 1/2 tsp of baking soda in a bit of water & threw it in the pot. Then put it on low for another 30 mins. FINALLY! YUMMY, COOKED, SOFT LENTILS! But they cooked FAST in that extra 30 mins. Not sure what will happen if I put it in from the get-go though.
