makes 1 1/3 cups

The Basic Fundamentals

Moonshine is basically fire water. Be certain to remove the pan from the stove eye when cooking over a gas flame to prevent any accidental boo-boos in the kitchen.

1 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup diced sweet onion
1 cup diced gala apple
1/4 cup moonshine
3/4 cup apple juice
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 cups cole slaw mix
1 Tbsp dark brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp minced jalapeño
1 tsp yellow mustard
3/4 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper

Sauté the onion in hot oil in a 3-quart saucepan over Medium heat 5 minutes or until tender. Add the apple. Remove the pan from the burner & add the moonshine. Place the pan back over the burner & add the apple juice, the vinegar, the slaw mix, the brown sugar, the jalapeño, the mustard & the salt. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally & cook 15 minutes or until the vegetables are crisp but tender & 1 Tbsp liquid remains. Season with pepper. Transfer to a Mason & chill 2 hours. Use as directed.

The Extra Point

This classic condiment adds texture to ham sandwiches, turkey-bacon rollups & smoky pulled pork barbecue sandwiches.

How To Mince Jalapeños For Recipe Applications

Jalapeños should be minced small as the heat can be powerful bite for bite but offer wonderful flavor & color to recipes. They range in size from 2 to 4-inches long. Choose firm, blemish free peppers from market produce bins. The oils can irritate skin so avoid contact with your eyes once they have been handled. It’s best practices to use a produce bag as a barrier. Place your hand in the bag, choose the peppers, then turn the bag inside out to contain those you plan the purchase.

 Mincing jalapeños allow for better heat distribution throughout recipe applications. Wearing a pair of disposable gloves is recommended when prepping peppers as the flesh & oils will irritate the skin. Slice the peppers in half. The membrane & the seeds carry a good deal of the heat. Remove them if a milder flavor is desired or add just a smidgen to heighten. Cut ultra thin strips of the pepper lengthwise, then use a chef knife to begin cutting the pieces crosswise. Continue cutting until the pieces are finely minced. Use as directed in recipe applications.
