2-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/4 cups red wine vinegar
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped

6 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon cayenne
In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the apples, sugar, vinegar, apricots, peaches, pears, raisins, garlic, ginger, salt, and cayenne. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium.
