Cut pears into bite-size chunks; chop apples. In small saucepan, combine pears, apples, lemon juice, sugar, salt, cloves, star anise, cinnamon and 2 tbsp (25 mL) water. Cover and bring to simmer; cook for 10 minutes. Uncover; cook until pears are very tender and apples break down to make thick sauce, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days; serve at room temperature.)
