Relishes, compotes, chutneys, etc. are a fantastic way to take an ordinary main dish and turn it in to a real showstopper.
I made this recipe up to make use of 4 large apples I had on the counter that needed to be put to use before they needed to be tossed. Combining fruit, spice, vinegar, and sugar,...and a bit of heat, makes for an easy make ahead condiment for poultry or pork main dishes.
I plan to serve this with a sage and mustard crusted pork chop.
This is a good recipe to jar up and share with friends during the Holiday Season. It is a good alternative to Cranberry Sauce.
