  • 1/2 cup minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon neutral-flavored oil
  • 2 quarts cubed apples
  • 1 minced serrano pepper (1 to 2 tablespoons, depending on how spicy you want it)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed (skin left on)
  • 2 cups agave syrup
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown mustard seeds
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


In a large saucepan, sauté shallots in oil over medium heat for 3 to 5 minuts. Add remaining ingredients, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, uncover and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until thick. Stir frequently toward the end to prevent scorching. Chill and serve at room temperature.
