Took my crockpot with us camping, and made this recipe for our last morning. Worked great to have a tasty, no fuss, few dishes meal before packing up to go home. (we had brown and serve sausages with it) HOWEVER, a word of caution for anyone wanting to increase the serving size. I needed to feed a group of 12, so I tripled the recipe. However, 12 cups of liquid (6 cups of water and 6 cups of juice) seemed like way too much. I decreased it to a total of 8 1/2 cups liquid, and it was still a bit more soupy than we would have prefered. 7 or 71/2 cups would have been enough liquid. Also, it was quite sweet. If I triple the recipe again, I'll only double the brown sugar. I have a large crock pot (20 cup capacity) and the triple batch (with 8.5 c liquid) filled it almost to the top. And yes, we had a lot left over. A double batch would have served 12 easily, even though almost everyone had seconds.
