  • 1 (20-ounce) can unsweetened pineapple chunks, undrained

  3. Cook fruit mixture over medium heat 20 minutes or until apricots are tender. Reduce heat; add sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. Slowly bring to a boil; boil, stirring frequently, until mixture registers 216° on a candy thermometer. Add cherries; cook over medium low heat, stirring frequently, until mixture registers 220° or until mixture sheets from a cold metal spoon.
