3 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 shallot, chopped
1 pinch chili flake
1 Serrano pepper, chopped (or jalapeno pepper for a milder version)
3 pears, peeled and diced
4 apples, peeled and diced
1 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup white wine
2 bay leaves
1-3/4 cups Dijon mustard
Salt

In a large heavy bottomed pot, over high heat, add the sugar, water and juice of half a lemon and cook until a medium-dark caramel is achieved, about 8 minutes. Add shallots and the chilies to the caramel. Immediately add all of the fruit, wine, and bay leaf. Cook gently until the fruits are tender and remove from heat. Add the Dijon when the fruits have just been removed from the heat, taste for salt. Let cool to room temperature. Store refrigerated in a covered container or in individual canning jars.
