Ingredients

Recipe Details

  1. Combine the water, juice, sugar, zest, lemon juice, and cloves in a 3-quart saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Simmer 6 minutes until slightly reduced. Add the pears, apricots, and cranberries; return to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until pears are tender enough to be easily pierced with the tip of a knife, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool in the syrup 15 minutes.
  2. With a slotted spoon transfer the fruit mixture to a bowl; discard zest and cloves. Return the saucepan with the liquid to the stove over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Cook until liquid thickens, about 4 to 5 minutes. Pour liquid over fruit.
