When Kit and I teach classes, one of our favorite items to present is non-traditional slow cooker recipes. We love to offer gluten-free granola, breakfast casseroles, luscious fruit desserts and even Chex Mix. Slow cookers can do so much more than just soup, stew and chili.
This compote combines dried fruit and fresh pears to create a fruit dessert that is pleasing to the eye and taste buds. This fragrant and colorful compote is delicious alone or served over some Greek yogurt for breakfast or over vanilla ice cream for dessert. Packed into a decorative glass jar, it makes a lovely hostess gift.
