Poached Pears


poached pears Sweet poached pears in caramel sauce is a dessert that’s blissfully simple to make in a slow cooker. Serve it with Belgian waffles and ice cream if you want to go above and beyond the call of dessert duty.


1.5 cups dark brown sugar
1 tbsp ginger, grated
2 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
6 Bosc pears, peeled, cored and halved

Mix your sugar, ginger and butter together in the crock pot, then add the pears and toss them in the mixture until they’re coated. Arrange the pear halves flat side down in the pot and cook on a high heat for 1 to 2 hours until the pears are tender, then dish them up and drizzle the caramel liquid over the top.
