Apple and Onion pickle

This one is so easy- thinly slice one peeled and cored apple. Thinly slice an onion. Layer in a jar with mace, allspice (had none so I used a few peppercorns), sliced ginger and a few shakes of flaked, dried hot pepper. Cover with cider vinegar. Leave in a cool place for a couple of weeks.

In answer to T's question 'With what does on eat apple and onion pickle?'the answer is: I haven't a clue! And to be completely honest, I haven't a clue what to eat with most of the pickles I've made!! I'm just going to keep trying different combinations. I can say, however, that the Fennel and Orange pickle is great with chicken.


  1. Looks like there's some cinnamon in there too. If you're ever short of anything spice-ish and can't get to the shops give me a shout, I can always post you a bit.

    I rather fancy this too.

  2. With what does one eat apple onion pickle? When we were kids, my mother added apples to our potato salad, German-style (she lived there for a couple of years) but I didn't realize that those two flavors went together elsewhere.

  3. I am gonna copy this off you :)this sounds like something right up my street:)
