Slow Cooker Pear Cider
8 medium pears, assorted types
1 TBSP C&C White Wine Mulling Spice
6 cups filtered water
⅓ cup maple syrup
Wash the pears and oranges then cut into quarters. Seeds, peels and stems are OK. Place the fruit in the bottom of your slow cooker Add C&C White Wine Mulling Spice.
Fill to the top of the slow cooker with water, leaving about an ¼-1/2-inch of space at the top. Cook on high heat for 3-4 hours or on low heat for 6-8 hours.
An hour before the cider is done cooking, use a potato masher to mash the fruit once it is softened.
Cook for an additional hour.
Strain the pear cider through a fine-mesh strainer or cheese cloth into a clean pitcher or pot, pressing on the solids to get all the juice out of the fruit. Stir in the maple syrup until it is dissolved and serve hot.
