A very quick and simple recipe today for an apple relish that I use all the time. Slightly sweet and tangy at the same time, my kids love this variation on apple sauce. It is delicious with steamed vegetables and is one way of getting the kids to eat their broccoli! It goes very well with grilled or roasted pork in particular.
Makes about 2 cups
6 medium size apples, peeled cored and roughly chopped
¾ cup apple juice
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
Zest of one lemon finely chopped
1 tsp five spice powder
1/3 cup brown sugar
Simmer all ingredients together until the apple pieces are fully cooked and the liquid had reduced. Mash the relish with a potato masher before serving.
