Cooked and served directly from the slow-cooker, our versatile and delicious Saucy Apples 'n' Pears dish can be served as a side dish or, even better, as a fruity dessert.

  • 3 cooking apples, cored, peeled and sliced
  • 3 ripe pears, cored, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 (3-inch) sticks cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
What To Do:
  1. Place the apples and pears in a 5-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with raisins.
     
  2. Combine syrup and next 3 ingredients, stirring well. Pour syrup mixture over fruit; toss to coat. Tuck cinnamon sticks into coated fruit mixture.Cover and cook on LOW setting 5 hours.
     
  3. Combine cornstarch and water, stirring until smooth; gently stir mixture into fruit.
     
  4. Cover and cook on HIGH setting an additional 15 minutes or until thickened; remove cinnamon sticks. Serve warm over ice cream or waffles; sprinkle each serving with pecans.

     
Notes

Store leftovers, covered, in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave until warm; avoid stirring as much as possible, so as not to break up fruit. You can also serve this as a side dish with pork chops or pork tenderloin. And, when entertaining the gang, serve this fruity dish directly from the slow cooker so that it stays nice and warm.
