    • 7 c. unsweetened apple juice

    1. Prepare Ball brand or possibly Kerr brand jars and closures according to manufacturer's instructions.
    2. Combine apples, pears, pineapple, raisins and apple juice in a large saucepot. Cover and simmer till fruit begins to soften. Remove cover. Add in spices. Bring mix to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer till mix begins to thicken. As mix thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. Stir in almonds; simmer 5 min.
    3. Carefully ladle warm conserve into warm jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe jar rim clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass. Screw band down proportionately and firmly just till a point of resistance is met - fingertip tight.
    4. Process 15 min in a boiling-water canner. At elevations higher than 1,000 feet, boil 2 additional min for each additional 1,000 feet elevation.
    5. This recipe yields about 4 pints.
