1 teaspoon of peppercorns crushed using a pestle and mortar

1 teaspoon cinnamon.

Preheat the slow cooker and prep all the ingredients.

Put all the ingredients into the slow cooker pot and stir, mixing everything together thoroughly.

Pop the lid on and cook on high for 6 to 7 hours stir once or twice until the beetroot is tender and the plums have plumped.
