¼ cup per serving
Slow cooker size/shape3 to 4½ quart round or oval
Slow cooking time3 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.
