Place apples and pears in a large mixing bowl. Combine the sugar, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and salt and add to the fruit. Toss to coat well. 

Heat juice in a large skillet and add the bowl mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover for 5 minutes. Then take off the lid and increase heat to medium so that the juice begins to thicken. 

Test the slices for doneness and take off of heat when saucy. Add in fresh lemon juice and stir to mix in.
