1 tablespoon oil
1 extra-large red onion, cut into slivers
1 extra-large apple, peeled, cored and finely diced
1/4 cup golden raisins
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1-1/2 teaspoons garam masala
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Heat oil in a large pot. Cook onions over medium heat until tender, then turn down heat to low. Cook onions until soft, about 10 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 1 to 1-1/2 hours until onion and apple have become very soft and vinegar is absorbed.
Pack into sterilized jars. (Note: I used instructions from eHow to sterilize my jars, which I won’t paraphrase here, as I don’t want to omit something and poison you if you make this.)
Makes 2 cups.
