Apple-Raisin Relish

Yield Makes 4 cups
Reader Dottie B. Miller suggests serving this sweet-tart relish over pound cake, but we love it alongside slices of pleasantly salty ham. You may substitute pecans for almonds if you prefer.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange rind
  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped

How to Make It

  1. Bring all ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring frequently, 20 to 25 minutes, until apples are tender and mixture has thickened.
