Suggested variation; Try Nashi (Asian) pears instead or regular Conference pears instead. If using Conference pears be sure to peel carefully and stand upright in the slow cooker.
Wash the prickly pears thoroughly and place in the slow cooker.
Mix the sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice together. Rub over the prickly pears, making sure the fruit is properly covered.
Cut the butter into chunks and scatter evenly around the pears in the pot.

If the cooking liquor is a little thin reduce in a pan to a syrupy consistency. Spoon the cooking sauce around the pears and serve.
