    I did this overnight. In the morning I stirred and tasted for flavors. At this time I used a immersion blender and blended till smooth.

    Put back in crockpot for another hour uncovered. The consistency was perfect so I didn't want any more liquid by leaving lid on. Look at this color!! I separated in 4 cup size jars. These can be canned with easy 10 min water bath way. Great for gifting. I will be using for other savory recipes besides enjoying on biscuits, muffins and toast.
