Slow Cooker Pear Sauce

  • Cooking Time:

    5–7 hours on Low or 3–4 hours on High
  • Servings:



12 pears, peeled and chopped
1/2 T. cin­na­mon
1 tsp. ground gin­ger
1/4 c. sug­ar
3/4 c. water
1 T. lemon juice
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. Maple Extract

Using fresh fruit is always bet­ter! That is why I like not only mak­ing Apple Sauce, I also like mak­ing Pear Sauce. This recipe is deli­cious!

  1. Peel and chop pears in small pieces.
  2. In a bowl or the crock com­bine pears with cin­na­mon, gin­ger, sug­ar, water, lemon juice, pinch of salt, and maple extract, mix­ing well.
  3. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 5–7 hours or on High for 3–4 hours, mak­ing sure fruit is soft.
  4. With a immer­sion blender, or a food proces­sor blend to your desired con­sis­ten­cy.

Option­al: Can also use apples with this recipe!

NOTE: If you like your pears a lit­tle chunky you may want to remove some of the chunks to add back. I like mine smooth, so I blend them all.

Hap­py Crock­ing!

I wish there was a way to print this recipe. It sounds deli­cious!


Looks delish…am going to try this as a sub­sti­tute for store-bought pear baby food! Is maple extract dif­fer­ent than pure maple syrup? (Sil­ly ques­tion, I know.)

What is the maple extract for? Can some­thing else be used?
