Combine with sugar and let stand overnight.
Add pineapple and simmer until pears are soft.
If syrup is not as heavy as desired, remove fruit; boil down to desired consistency or add a little pectin, perhaps a teaspoon if preferred, to thicken quickly.
Add cherries and nuts to mixture.
Bring to a rolling boil and put into sterilized canning jars.
Seal with rings and lids that have been sterilized.
Good on breads, muffins, poultry, and meats.
