Mulled Wine Poached Pears are a super delicious and quick dessert to make. Plus with the slow cooker can be made in advance and kept warm all day.

Mulled Wine Poached Pears are a lovely light pudding. They are fruity and warm and the best thing is they are so easy. Pop everything in slow cooker and leave to warm and poach. Pears are a beautifully delicate fruit and the mulled wine infuses very very well.

It was a beautiful fruity dessert. The pear is so soft and warm with the spices from the mulled wine are clear to taste. We served it with a scoop of ice cream but it would have tasted wonderful on it’s own.

It really is so easy to make.

Peal the pears, leaving the stalks on. Add them to the slow cooker with the cloves and cinnamon sticks.

Add the chopped up clementines, pour over the mulled wine and cook.

    These look mouthwatering. You could slightly change the spices and make these all year long!

    I really love poached pears, which I’ve previously poached in a combination of port and red wine, sometimes with a cinnamon stick thrown in, so I know I’d love this mulled wine version, what a clever idea for a quick and delicious poaching liquid and syrup.
