This recipe is a winner. The Apple Relish was easy to make, and is one of the best tasting relishes I’ve ever eaten. Its sweet-sour, spicy, fruitiness perfectly complements grilled or roasted beef or pork.
7 cups apples, peeled and chopped
2 cup raisins
1 cup vinegar
3 1/2 cups sugar
1 orange, peeled and chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a large pan. Bring to a boil, then stir occasionally and boil steadily for half an hour.
Ladle into hot half-pint or pint jars. Wipe jar rim, and adjust lids. Process in boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
Makes approximately 8 half-pints (4 pints)
