Here we are, 2 weeks after fermenting the apple & beetroot. The recipe from The Nourished Kitchen only calls for it to ferment for 3-4 days, but I was away on holidays so let it sit awhile longer.

The result you ask? It turned out fantastic! I served it with porkchops from Two Rivers Specialty Meats in North Vancouver, and received only positive feedback (minus my mother that is the pickiest eater I know).

Here are the last 2 steps to complete the process:

7. After your apple and beetroot relish has sufficiently cultured, remove it from the vegetable fermenter and gently pick out the star anise pods and whole cloves.
8. Place the apple and beetroot relish into a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Delicious relish, COMPLETE!
