juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoon honey


Peel, core, and dice apples and pears. pour lemon juice over them and toss. Pour 1/2 cup water and fruit mixture into heavy pan. Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the fruit from sticking or burning.

With a fork, crush the fruit coarsely while continuing to cook for another 3-5 minutes, or until excess water evaporates. Remove from heat. Add honey and mix gently. Serve lukewarm or cold. If you store it in the refrigerator, remove 30 before serving.
