40g peeled fresh ginger, minced
12g peeled garlic, minced
1 green Serrano chili, sliced
250g sugar
100ml cider vinegar
25ml aged red wine vinegar
40ml fish sauce

  • Place the green peppers, apples, garlic and ginger in a food processor and process until the size of lentils.
    Combine with all of the other ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil.
    Reduce the heat to a simmer and continue cooking until the relish is glossy, thick, and delicious, about 45 minutes. Refrigerate until needed

  • Apple Crumble

    1.APPLE MIX ( seriously use NZ apples if you want a really good crumble!)
    2.Peel and core apples, then cut into rough 1-2cm cubes. Place apples in large saucepan and cover with water. Simmer covered with lid on high until apples are tender but not too soft (usually 5-10mins once water is simmering). Drain apples well and place in large bowl
    3.Combine caster sugar and cinnamon (ensures even spread), then toss through the apples.
    5.Combine flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl until evenly mixed through.
    6.Melt butter (do not burn or boil it) and add vanilla essence to butter, stir through.
    7.Add butter mix to dry ingredients and mix well using a fork. Ensure all ingredients are moist and mixture has a crumbly texture.
    9.Place apple mix evenly in medium casserole dish. Spread crumble mix over top of apple. Bake at 180 degrees C for 30-40minutes, or until crumble topping is slightly browned.
    10.Serve with vanilla icecream, cream, or custard and ENJOY!
