Equipment

  • Slow Cooker
  • Peeler

Ingredients

  • 6 pears
  • 1 bottle mulled wine
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 3 clementines
  • 200 ml apple juice (optional)

Instructions

  • Peel the pears, leaving the stalks on, and add them to the slow cooker.
  • Add the cloves to the pears or into the slow cooker.
  • Add the cinnamon sticks to the slow cooker.
  • Chop the clementines into quarters and add them along with the spices. You can peel them but it also works if you keep the skins on.
  • Pour over the mulled wine. (If you have a large slow cooker and the mulled wine doesn't cover the pears you can add apple juice to help cover or an extra bottle of mulled wine).
  • Put the slow cooker on a hot setting for 1 hour. Then turn it on low for 2 hours and until you're ready to serve. Turn the pears over if the mulled wine doesn't cover them completely. (3 hour cook time in total)
  • Serve the pears and enjoy the mulled wine.

Notes

You can leave the pears in the slow cooker for a while to keep warm if you are running later to serve them.
They also taste great with some custard, ice cream or whipped cream. Plus a ginger bread biscuit works with it ever so well!
