Pomegranate-Apple Relish

Fruits are delicious on their own, they don't need a recipe but still we foodies can't resist the temptation to create something out of them. And sometimes it does work, like in this recipe. This relish is not only delicious but also healthy. The pomegranate syrup has a very dominating flavour here. I added a little sugar as I find pomegranate juice's taste a little odd. But If you don't have any problem with that, you can skip the sugar altogether. You can also cook this relish but I like it this way better. The mushy-juicy apples, the tanginess of orange-lemon juice and the juicy bites of pomegranate makes this relish a delish!! How about serving this relish to your guests this festive time or giving this away to them in a beautiful jar or something! So try this healthy tasty relish and cook the natural way!!

You need
1 cup pomegranate juice (from about 2-3 pomegranates)
1 cup orange juice (about 2-4 oranges)
3 apples (peeled and grated)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
handful of basil leaves (chopped)
1 tablespoon sugar
dash of cinnamon powder

1. In pan, add pomegranate juice and sugar. Boil till the juice thickens. Keep aside to cool.

2. When cooled, add orange juice to thickened pomegranate syrup. Mix well.

3. Now add grated apples, pomegranate seeds, lemon juice, basil leaves and cinnamon.

4. Enjoy the relish straight away or store in glass jars and keep it in refrigerator (keeps for 2 days).
