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!

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?
