Get Organized!

Gather your mise en place; get together all of the equipment needed for the recipe and gather your ingredients.

Get Prepped!

Cut the onion in half and peel off the outer skin. Place the flat side down on a cutting board and slice the knife horizontally from the top to the root, keeping the root intact. Then slice down vertically, still keeping the root intact. Finally, slice across the onion to form a fine dice.

Slice the apple around the core, then dice those slices into small cubes, just larger than the onion pieces.

Mince the ginger and garlic using a rasp, or alternatively you can use a chef’s knife.

Measure out all remaining ingredients.

Get Cooking!

In a small pot, over medium heat, add in the canola oil.

Cook ginger, garlic, onions, and apples, until the onions are translucent.

Reduce heat to medium. Deglaze with vinegar.

Toss in the sugar, stir. Season with cinnamon, salt and pepper.

Cook until thickened slightly.
