Instructions
  1. Optional: halve and core the pears. Cut the bottom off the pears so they'll sit nicely when served.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a 3 1/2 or 4 quart slow cooker, laying the pears on their sides to cook.
  3. Cover and cook until pears are very tender. Low takes about 4 to 5 hours, or high about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  4. Serve with syrup. They're great over ice cream, with angel food cake, or garnished with nuts.
