Peel pears, and core if desired. Leave stalks on. Place them stalk up in slow cooker.
Stick a clove into each pear, near the stalk.
Drizzle lemon juice over each individual pear.
Scatter slivered almonds evenly over pears, and repeat with raisins.
Pour wine into bottom of pan.
Orange rind goes into the wine, and honey goes straight into the liquid also.
The slow cooker went on high for 2 hours, then low for 3. Or – you can pop them in on low for 7 – 8 hours.
To make the coulis:
Quarter strawberries and throw them in a pan with coconut sugar (optional) and 1 tbsp water. Put the lid on and bring to a boil, then quickly turn down to simmer for approx 15 mins, or until strawberries are soft. Then whizz with a bamix until it’s a purée and pour over the pear(s)!… Can also be served with coconut cream. Enjoy – x.
