  • 3 medium pears
  • 2 medium apples
  • 1 cup seedless grapes
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1¼ cups apple juice or cider
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch


  • Colander
  • Cutting board
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Medium pot
  • Sharp knife
  • Small bowl


  1. Rinse pears, apples, and grapes. Do not peel fruit.
  2. Remove core from pears and apples. Cut fruit into 1-inch pieces.
  3. In a medium pot, add pears, apples, grapes, raisins, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  4. Add apple juice and water to pot to barely cover the fruit.
  5. Bring fruit and juice to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10–15 minutes. Remove from heat.
  6. In a colander, strain the fruit over a small bowl, reserving the liquid.
  7. Return the liquid to the pot. Add cornstarch. Cook on low to thicken slightly. Remove from stove and let cool.
  8. 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.

Chef’s Notes

  • Use any type of apples and pears you like.
  • Try a combination of dark and golden raisins, dried cranberries, or dried cherries.
  • Enjoy alone or on top of grilled meat or fish, over low-fat plain yogurt, or over oatmeal or toast.
  • For a hearty and healthy brunch, serve with whole wheat pancakes. Add a dollop of low-fat plain or vanilla yogurt.
