Slow Cooker Pear Butter is a great zero point treat for Weight Watchers. I have totally fallen in love with this way of cooking down fruits to make my own homemade jams, butter, and spreads. There is no need for added sugars when you have great fruit for flavor and natural sweetness.

I use a 6-quart slow cooker to make this slow cooker pear butter. You don’t need that large of a slow cooker, but I find the heat in this one is more consistent than the smaller options I have on hand. Also, while I don’t peel my pears for this, many prefer to peal their fruit before cooking. If so, I love this vegetable peeler for comfortably handling and thin slices of the skin.
