Adjika-Style Salsa - CIC

Bell peppers and apple juice. What do you make with those two? A drink? Hmm, I do want to start drinking vegetable juices. But not this time. How about taking liberties with a Ukranian salsa called adjika. Let me tell you, I have no chips to scoop up this salsa but that hasn't stopped the shovelling.

Adjika-Style Salsa 

1lb tomatoes
1/4lb bell peppers
1/4lb apples
1 small carrot
1/8lb onion
1/2 scotch bonnet pepper
2 tablespoons apple juice
1 bay leaf
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
pinch of cayenne


Process the tomatoes, bell peppers, apples, carrots, onion, and scotch bonnet peppers until coarse and chunky. You may want to do this in batches. Transfer to a pot and add the apple juice and bay leaf. Bring to a quick boil then turn down the heat to low and allow to simmer for an hour.

Add the garlic, oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt, red pepper flakes, and cayenne. Let simmer for another 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary. Cool and enjoy.
