Apple Pear Raisin Syrup

One December several years ago I was making pancakes for the family and realized I did not have any syrup. The spices remind me of Christmas time.

2 small pears, peeled, cored and sliced
1 small apple, peeled, cored and sliced
Dash Nutmeg
1 / 8 tsp Cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins
Dash ground cloves
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 / 2 cup water
1 tbsp butter

In a sauce pan add all ingredients let come to a boil then simmer until pears and apples are soft. Mash up some of the pears and apples slightly to blend.  If syrup is to runny, in a small bowl mix juice from pan and a little flour until smooth. Add to syrup.  Serve with pancakes, waffles or French toast.
Note: use older pears and apples that are on the mushy side.
