Servings: 1 heaped tablespoon
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 medium red onion - chopped finely
- Zest & juice one medium orange
- 150 grams fresh cranberries 1 and 1/2 cups
- 1 medium green apple - grated
- 3 tablespoons sultanas
- 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons red or white wine
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1 whole star anise
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
- Pinch sea salt
Gently melt your butter over a low heat in a medium sized saucepan and while that is happening finely chop you onion up and add it to the melted butter. Keep it on a low heat stirring occasionally for at least 5 minutes until your onions are soft and translucent.
Add in the orange zest and juice along with the fresh cranberries, grated apple and sultanas.
Spoon in the sugar, red wine vinegar and red/white wine and give everything a good stir.
Quickly stir in the spices along with the salt.
Gently increase the heat to bring it all to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and stir continually until you have a sticky jam like substance in the pan. It will take about 15-20 minutes to reach this stage.
Decant the relish into a steralised jar and seal. Use within 2 months, once opened keep in the fridge and eat within 2 weeks.
