Peel,core and chop the pears.
Place all ingredients in a small slow cooker. Cook 3/12 hours on High.
Take off the cover and carefully use an immersion blender to blend the juice with the pieces of pears to incorporate and turn the mixture a lovely brown.
This should take about an hour. Using a regular blender may be very dangerous as the mixture is very hot.
Cook with top off until the mixture thickens and becomes a lovely brown.
