Slow Cooker Spiced Pear Sauce. This easy pear sauce is super simple thanks to a slow cooker or Instant Pot. Set it, forget it, then enjoy it! (Paleo + Vegan + Whole30)


  • 8 medium pears, cored and diced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom


  1. Place pears, water and spices in the slow cooker.
  2. Cook on HIGH 3-4 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours.
  3. For more rustic sauce: simply mash with a potato masher, leaving large pieces here and there.
  4. For super-smooth sauce: Let cool slightly, then work in batches to puree in a blender.* (Alternatively, you can use an immersion blender to puree.)
  5. Eat warm or cold!


FOR INSTANT POT PEAR SAUCE: Place diced pears, water, and spices in your Instant Pot. Cover, set the pressure valve to “SEALING” then pressure cook on manual for 10 minutes. Quick-release the steam, then mash or puree!

*When pureeing warm or hot liquids, work in batches so as not to over-fill blender. If possible, vent slightly and cover with a kitchen towel to prevent splatters.
