Sweet Apple Relish

This delightful slightly tart yet sweet relish is a perfect accompaniment to my ‘New Favourite Chicken Liver Paté’ but would also work brilliantly with a game terrine or pie, spicy sausages or adorning a fabulous cheeseboard (one of my favourite meals all by itself!). It’s easy to make and will keep in the fridge for several weeks.

Makes 250ml

What you need…

25g butter

2 eating apples, peeled cored and diced (5mm)

50g caster sugar

25ml sherry vinegar

75ml red wine

Pinch of salt

What to do…

Melt the butter over a moderate heat. When it begins to foam, tip in the apples and cook for 2-3 minutes until they begin to turn golden around the edges.

Add the remaining ingredients, stir thoroughly and cook for 5 minutes until reduced and jam-like with the apples cooked through but not mushy.

Allow to cool before serving or decanting into a sterilised jar and popping in the fridge, awaiting an opportunity to indulge! (I will make some at the beginning of December for all those casual dates with cheese that we have planned!)

How easy…

No effort at all

 

 

Chicken Liver Paté with Brandy Revisited

In prep for a family gathering this weekend, I’m revisiting a few old favourites. Friday night will be a couple of cocktails followed by paté, cheeses, dips, breads and olives whilst we all catch up, so here’s the first, made today but frozen until Friday morning. This is genuinely one of the most lovely patés I have ever tasted, surpassed only by one or tried in posh restaurants! Great for sharing and also for advance prep – I’ve made one sharing dish for Friday and a further three for future occasions. Very yummy!

For the full recipe, go to the top right hand corner search box on my home page and type in Pate – this recipe together with a couple of others will pop up. Enjoy!
