- 3 medium pears
- 2 medium apples
- 1 cup seedless grapes
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 1/4 cups apple juice or cider
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- Rinse pears, apples, and grapes. Do not peel fruit.
- Remove core from pears and apples. Cut fruit into 1-inch pieces.
- In a medium pot, add pears, apples, grapes, raisins, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
- Add apple juice and water to pot to barely cover the fruit. (I added more juice and water than the recipe called for--depends on the size of pears and apples.)
- Bring fruit and juice to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10–15 minutes. Remove from heat.
- In a colander, strain the fruit over a small bowl, reserving the liquid.
- Return the liquid to the pot. Add cornstarch. Cook on low to thicken slightly. Remove from stove and let cool.
- Pour thickened juice mixture over fruit and stir. Cool and serve right away. Or, store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
