0 Reviews
From: Everyday Slow Cooker

Essentially slow-cooker applesauce with pears added in, this is comforting, cinnamony and not too sweet. Use it any way you would use applesauce—in cakes, on pork chops, or eaten straight with a spoon. You can leave the apples unblended and use them as an oatmeal topping or a lighter apple pie filling.
