  • 4 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed

Instructions

  1. As you prepare the apples, add to a bowl and mix with lemon juice.
  2. Heat the canola oil and saute the onions in a large saucepan. When translucent, add apples, sugar, vinegar, cumin, cinnamon stick and raisins.
  3. Simmer uncovered, stirring frequently. Wrap the remaining spices in cheesecloth. Simmer down for about 1.5 hours. Remove cinnamon stick and cheesecloth spices.
