Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 cups chopped peeled cored apples
4 cups chopped peeled cored pears
2 cups chopped peeled cored pineapple
1 cup golden raisins
7 cups unsweetened apple juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup slivered almonds

Prepare Ball brand or Kerr brand jars and closures according to
manufacturer's instructions.

Combine apples, pears, pineapple, raisins and apple juice in a large
saucepot. Cover and simmer until fruit begins to soften. Remove cover.
Add spices. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer until mixture
begins to thicken. As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent
sticking. Stir in almonds; simmer 5 minutes.

Carefully ladle hot conserve into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace.
Wipe jar rim clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass.
Screw band down evenly and firmly just until a point of resistance is met
-- fingertip tight.

Process 15 minutes in a boiling-water canner. At elevations higher than
1,000 feet, boil 2 additional minutes for each additional 1,000 feet
elevation.

This recipe yields about 4 pints.
