Delicious Pears on Syrup... ~ recipe

Hello there! If your new, welcome to my blog! where I share everything that is totally me... from sewing to food... From diapers to crafts with the kids!
So... Are you one of those that uses the crock pot only during the winter months?(like I do...)

Well dear, with this delicious recipe you will love to bring it out in the summer!
You will leave your company in total awe, thinking you have been in the kitchen all day!
(Isn't that what we want? - with a whispering voice)
Shhh - don't tell anyone! 



What you need:

1 Crock pot
Very Hard Pears - I used d'Anjou pears
Sugar/honey
Red Grape juice
Vanilla ice cream - optional
Raisins - optional

*It is important that the pears are not ripe!

Preparations:

Peel your Pears.
Cut them in halves length wise.
Remove the cores/centers.
 
Put pears in crock pot. Add the Red Grape juice and pour enough to almost cover the pears.
Add raisins.
Add 1 - 2 tablespoons of honey/agave. (depending on your own sweet tooth)
Set crock pot on low setting and allow your pears to stew on low for 20 hours.
(You may turn it off during the night or set to warm)
It does not need to be kept in the fridge since the pears are preserved in a super sweet juice.
It will not go bad overnight.

Your Pears are done when they are extremely dark almost purple!
*And soft when you push a fork into them. 

Best served when warm with Vanilla Icecream!



Dress up your table gather your friends and enjoy!

I will be deliciously sharing this with Lisa at Mangia Monday's Shine Your Light,
Delightfully Dowling ,
and Emily on "Tasty Tuesday Linky Party - Naptime Creations - Tasty Tuesday"




Tip:

Have any leftovers?
These pears are great for canning too.
I keep them in a Canning jar for up to 10 days in a fridge.
For your safety:
Want to keep them longer follow your own canning instructions.

Make it a lovely week!

Blessings

Sandy

Lekker zeg, Sandy, ik zou bijna aan mijn scherm gaan likken ;-)

Wat zul je genoten hebben van dit heerlijke gerecht. Gaat het goed met je? Waarschijnlijk hartstikke druk met van alles en nog wat. Pas je ook een beetje goed op jezelf.

Ik wens je een mooie week

Ha lieve Sandy, wat ben ik blij dat Ann is gearriveerd. Ik hoop dat je haar mooi vindt en Keturah natuurlijk helemaal. Verstandig dat je haar nog even voor haar verjaardag bewaart.
Afgelopen zondag heb ik de workshop bij Kamrin gevolgd. Echt geweldig, veel geleerd, leuke mensen. Ik kan hier weer verder mee. En het is hier opeens zomer geworden, ik ben weer helemaal blij. Liefs, Ieke
