Slow Cooker Pear Sauce

I bought quite a bit of fruit early last week, and then went out of town for the weekend. When I came home, there was a big bowl full of over-ripe fruit demanding immediate attention. I just threw all the pears into the slow cooker because I didn't really want to spend all day cooking, and they turned out fabulously. Yum!

Slow Cooker Pear Sauce
5-6 very ripe pears
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Remove the cores and peels from the pears. Dice pears into uniform-sized pieces. Place into a 2 qt slow cooker. Top with brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook on high for 4 hours or until pears are extremely tender. Mash with a fork or use a blender until smooth.
