Local Apple Relish
I decided on a condiment to go with Pico, a French goat cheese, while I was playing golf with friends. Our course was originally an apple orchard, and apple trees line the fairways; this is a terrific year for apples, and there are literally thousands of them, ripe for the picking. I grabbed a bunch of Romes and Macintoshes from the course and made a simple relish for the cheese.
- ½ cup of sugar more or less depending on your apples
- ¼ cup cider vinegar
- 1½ pounds tart crisp apples, peeled and cut into ½" chunks
- ½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- In a medium sized pot over medium heat, heat the sugar and vinegar, stirring to dissolve.
- Stir in the apples and cook for about 5 minutes, until the apples are cooked but still hold their shape. Stir in the ginger, taste and add salt as needed.
- Cool to room temperature. Serve and enjoy!
