Cooking with Wine
I absolutely enjoy creating this recipe as it combines two of my favorite things.... wine and my slow cooker.
These warm spiced pears elevate slow cooking to a new level of elegance, yet they're incredibly easy to make. Your friends won't believe this fancy-looking dessert came from a slow cooker.
- Peel pears, leaving stems intact. Core from the bottom. Stand pears upright in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, wine, marmalade, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Carefully pour over pears.
- Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until tender. To serve, drizzle pears with sauce and garnish with vanilla ice cream.
