Put this over cream cheese, to be spread over crackers, and it is absolutely WONDERFUL! Everyone that I have served it to has asked for the recipe. It takes awhile to make, but isn't hard. Its great to have on hand for unexpected guest.

This is a fantastic recipe! We have a pear tree and this is a tasty way to use them up. I add dried cherries to the fruit mix and 1 cup of brandy just prior to processing.
