this is something I have made in the restaurant so the volume is quite large but it last a very long time so worth make it in volume for this I use unripe crab apples
wipe your apple with a clean damp cloth and cut off the base just a little bit it helps with the pickling of the apples and it is not the nicest piece to eat
1 litre of cider vinager
600 ml of honey
600 ml water
I cinnamon stick
1 wild bay leaf or store bought one is fine
bring the liquid to the boil and reduce to a simmer
place the apples in and leave for five minutes
remove from the heat and leave for ten minutes
remove the apples and cool both
place the apples in a spotless clean jar and pour the liquid over the place in either the fridge or larder for about a week before use but for up to a year maybe more it doesn’t last in the restaurant

How do you use them?
I use them with a pork fillet dish, also great in salads .
