  1. Pour peaches, pears, cherries, and all syrups from the canned fruit into a large pot. Stir in prunes, raisins, mandarin orange peels, and cinnamon sticks; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until slightly thick, about 2 hours.
  2. Serve warm. Remove orange peels and cinnamon sticks before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use either 1 or 2 cans of sweet cherries in heavy syrup. Substitute canned prunes if sweet cherries are not available.
  • Cool, store in the refrigerator overnight, and reheat the second day for a richer flavor. Remove the orange peels and cinnamon sticks just before serving.
