- 2 pears
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 TBSP ground ginger
- 1 TBSP unsalted butter
* You can multiply for a larger quantity.
Peel the pears, trim the top and bottom, cut in half and using a melon baller remove the seeds
Put the brown sugar, ginger and butter in a crockpot. Toss the pears with the sugar mixture then place them cut side down in the crock pot.
Cook on High for 2 hours or until they slice easily with a knife. Mine were ready in exactly two hours.
1 hour in spoon the melted sugar mixture over the pears.
When the pears are ready carefully remove them with a slotted spoon and plate them. Then take the excess melted sugar mixture and pour it into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and let reduce until slightly thick, shaking the pan constantly. When ready spoon over pears.
I love these. They were incredibly easy to make and really tasty. Dan wasn’t as sure about them. He’d never had a pear before!
