  • In a saucepan, bring the apple juice, ginger and allspice to a boil.
  • Add the pears and reduce to a simmer.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Remove ginger slices.
  • Continue to cook, stirring regularly to prevent sticking, until the mixture is thick, smooth, spreadable and a dark-brown caramel.
  • Can in a water bath or spoon into a clean jar and keep in the fridge up to 6 weeks.
