  1. Put all the ingredients, except the cranberries, in a large saucepan and heat slowly, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Increase the temperature and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for about 45-60 mins, until the apples have mashed up, the onions have softened and the mixture has thickened. Add the cranberries to the pan and cook for another 20-30 mins, until they’ve softened and the relish has thickened to a spooning consistency.
  2. Take the pan off the heat and spoon the relish into warm, clean, sterilised dry jars or containers — make sure there aren’t any air bubbles. Leave to cool, then cover the relish with vinegar-proof lids and seal. Store in a cool, dark place for at least 1 week before eating. The relish will keep in the fridge for up to 2 months, unopened. Use within 1 month once opened.
