"This recipe is amazing! We definitely love it."

MY REVIEW

"cootie, According to this chart, http://homecooking.about.com/library/archive/blalcohol12.htm after 1.5 hours in the slow cooker will still leave 20% of the alcohol behind. Rum extract also contains alcohol. You'd need to find an non-alcohol based extract if you want this with no alcohol content. If you're cooking for a recovering alcoholic, skip this recipe altogether. Just taste of alcohol, even in the absence of actual alcohol, can trigger a relapse."

"Quick question: I don't cook with alcohol much, so will the alcohol cook out of the rum? How would I adjust this recipe to accommodate using an extract instead, or is that not recommended? I would love to make this for my son and I (he's 9) and am concerned about using actual rum."

"Very good made as instructed first time, second time left out coconut - I liked it better without coconut. Just a personal preference. Thanks for submitting :)"
