Green Pepper and Apple Relish


500g green peppers, deseeded

300g cored apples, cut into quarters

50g fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

125g onions, roughly chopped

20g garlic, sliced

2 green chillies, thinly sliced into rounds

175ml cider vinegar

75ml fish sauce (nam pla)

250g white sugar



Blitz the peppers, apples, ginger and onions in a food processor to achieve a rough paste. Tip into a heavy-bottomed pan and add all the remaining ingredients. Bring to the boil, skim off any foam that has risen to the surface, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cook, stirring frequently for 40 minutes or until a jammy consisitency has been reached. Place in an airtight container, (could be a jam jar?), and store in your fridge.

Goes with just about anything!
