Smokey Apple Onion Compote

Jamie S


My dad and I did our annual trip to the apple orchard this week! I don't eat meat (except the occasional bite), but I'm sure this would be good on pork or chicken. It's also good on crusty bread and salads. By the way, the recipe makes a lot so be sure to share or cut in half.
