  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir apples, Asian pears, and apple cider together in the skillet until the fruit is mushy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Smash the apples and pears with the back of a wooden spoon until no large chunks remain; continue cooking until thickened, 20 to 30 minutes more.
  3. Stir sugar and cinnamon into the sauce; cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves completely, 5 to 7 minutes more.
