Serves 8
¼ cup per serving

Slow cooker size/shape
3 to 4½ quart round or oval

Slow cooking time
3 to 3½ hours on low

  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 medium, very firm (unripe) pears, pealed and iced
  • ½ cup all-fruit apricot spread

  • 1 teaspoon grated peeled gingerroot

Lightly spray a 2-cup heatproof glass measuring cup with cooking spray.  Put the pears in the measuring cup.  Spoon the fruit spread on top.  Cook, covered, on low for 3 to 3½ hours, or until the pears are just tender.

Carefully remove the measuring cup from the slow cooker.  Pour the dip into a shallow bowl.  Let stand for 1 hour, or until room temperature.  Stir in the gingerroot.

Cook's tip:  If you use ripe pears, the dip will be mushy rather than slightly chunky.
