Description

Pear preserves made easy as pie by using your slow cooker! Heavenly, low-sugar, and delicious. Plain and simple!

Ingredients

  • 5 quarts Pears, Peeled, Cored, And Sliced Thinly
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ⅓ cups Lime Or Lemon Juice
  • 3 teaspoons Mixed Spices, Such As Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, Allspice, And Nutmeg

Preparation

Using a slow cooker liner if you’ve got one, add all the ingredients to a 6-quart slow cooker. Stir to incorporate. Turn the slow cooker on high and place the lid on halfway.

Forget about the preserves for 8-10 hours.

Come back and stir the now-caramelized, reduced, and delicious preserves you effortlessly made. Taste and add any other desired spices. Ladle preserves into jars and hot water bath process for 15 minutes.

Note: for those of you who don’t can, check out the resources from fellow blogger Food In Jars (link in related blog post).

Yumm. Sounds delish. This is also how I make apple butter. I use only enough sugar to take away any bite the apples may have. throw in some spices and let them cook in the slow cooker for 18 to 24 hours with the lid only half on. Thanks for sharing!
