Green Apple - Chipotle Salsa
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Large yellow onion, diced small
6 Granny Smith apples, unpeeled, cored and chopped
2 canned chipotle peppers
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons molasses
2 ts chopped fresh oregano
salt and pepper to taste
In a large saute pan, heat the oil until hot but not smoking, add
the onion, and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the apples,
cover and continue to cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally,
for an additional 8 minutes, or until the apples are a bit soft on
the exterior. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, combine the chipotles and vinegar in a blender or food
processor and puree. Transfer to a medium-sized bowl, add the
cumin, lemon juice, molasses, oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
Add the apples and onions to the chipotle mixture and stir well.
Allow to sit in the refrigerator, covered, overnight or for at
least 2 hours.
