Put apples,pears & clementine into a small sauce pan,cover with water & boil until soft,add sugar.Add water if needed.Boil it for extra 1-2 min,take off the heat & blend.You can also press it throu the sieve.Add raisins,back to the heat,check the taste if you need more sugar or want to add some spice to your jam,cinnamon or ginger,maybe nutmeg,bring it to the boil ,take off the heat & spoon the jam into the jars(about2x250 ml jars).Close the jars airtight & keep in the fridge.

I had loads of pears waiting for somebody to eat them way too long,in some reason they are not too popular fruits in our family.So i had to use them up & now I got this beautiful spread for our sunday pancakes!Delicious & not too sweet,so the fruits can spoil your taste buds.
