Introduction

I found myself with a mealy apple, both overripe plums and plums picked too early, as well as an excess of mint and hot peppers. Sauce and soups are a great way to reduce food waste for fruits and vegetables no longer up to snuff.

Ingredients

    1t oil (5g)
    1/4 onion, diced (46g)
    1/4t cinnamon, ground fresh
    3/4" ginger (3g)

    1 1/4c.apple cider vinegar (280g)

    1 large apple, cored (170g)
    14.25 oz plums, pitted (399g)


    5T minced/food processed hot peppers, seeds and all (75g)
    4 1/2T honey (66g)

    10" mint, stems included, minced (1g)
    1/4t lemon zest (less than 1g)

Tips

This is pictured both in a shredded chicken lettuce wrap and as a dipping sauce for the other wrap, with peaches added to the lunch box. I recommend dipping.


Directions

Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add remainder of the first grouping one a piece of onion causes a sizzle. Reduce to medium heat and sautee until onions are soft and all liquid has evaporated, moving food frequently.

Pour the vinegar into the skillet and, using your spatula, scrub any food that's stuck to the bottom into the liquid.

Rough chop apple and plums, add to skillet, cover and cook until the apple has softened.

Working in two batches, run the mixture through your blender and return to the pan. (An immersion blender is even better.)

Add peppers and honey, and bring back up to a simmer, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in the mint and zest.
