Try Taya's tangy-sweet homemade relish with your holiday meal this Thanksgiving.
If using fresh pearl onions, you need to peel them first by filling a saucepan three-quarters full with water and bringing to a boil. Trim the root off each onion and then cut an X lightly with a paring knife at the same end. Drop the onions in the boiling water for 2 minutes; remove and place under running cold water to stop the cooking. Squeeze the uncut end, and out the slips the onion!
In a saucepan, place the apple juice, diced apple, onions, currants, ginger, and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and let simmer for 20 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer another 3–4 minutes. Tip: This gets better the next day, so make it early and refrigerate until ready to serve.
