The crisp fall air means it’s apple picking time again, whether from an orchard or from your local farmers’ market, for a variety of sweet crispy apples. While apples are great for eating as a healthy snack, try something new with your freshly picked apples. This simple, sweet and slightly spicy condiment is a great accompaniment to serve alongside or on top of roasted chicken, pork tenderloin, pork chops or even nice, firm fish.

Makes six servings.


  • 2 to 3 apples (small to medium) such as McIntosh, Macoun or your favorite crisp, sweet apple, cored peeled and diced
  • ½ red bell pepper, diced
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno or red chili pepper, diced (remove seeds and membrane; if you like a little extra spice leave some of the membrane intact)
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients together and serve.
