Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine pear, undrained pineapple, dried apricots orange juice concentrate, tapioca and ginger (see Tip).

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours. Stir in cherries at the end.

  • To serve, spoon warm compote into dessert dishes. Top with coconut.


Tips: To toast coconut, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice, watching closely to avoid burning.

For easy cleaning, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
