5 cloves garlic
2 oz whole Morita Chiles, dried and stemmed, with seeds
8 Cups water
1-1/4 Cup Traditional White Balsamic Vinegar
2/3 Cup thinly sliced onion
2 tsp Smoked Sea Salt
3 Allspice Berries
1/4 tsp Thyme leaf
1 Cinnamon Stick
3 Tbsp apple juice concentrate
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
1/4 Cup ketchup
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 Tbsp Sherry Vinegar
In a cast iron pan, roast the garlic over medium-low heat for 15 min, and then transfer to a medium saucepan.
Toast the morita chiles in the cast iron skillet for 2 min, then add to the saucepan. Add water, vinegar, onion, salt, allspice berries, thyme, cinnamon, apple juice, and liquid smoke. Cook mixture, covered, for 30 min at a low simmer.
Add ketchup and tomato paste and cook, uncovered, for an additional 20 min. Liquid should now be reduced to about 1 cup. Allow to cool and add the sherry vinegar.
Serve warm, or allow to cool completely if preferred. Refrigerate leftover salsa.
1 ounce Ancho Chile Powder
1 Chile de Arbol
1/2 Cup cherries, pitted
1 Cup cherry juice
1 Cup water
1/3 Cup brown sugar
1/8 tsp Ground Allspice
1 Tbsp Cacao Nibs
Smoked Sea Salt
In as cast iron pan, over medium heat, toast the ancho chile and the Chile de Arbol for 1 minute. Transfer toasted chiles to a medium saucepan.
Add 1/2 Cup cherries, cherry juice, water, 1/3 Cup brown sugar, the allspice and 1 Tbsp cacao nibs. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced to 1 Cup.
Allow mixture to cool a little (so it won’t explode the lid off the blender!), and transfer to a blender. Puree mixture in the blender and strain into a mixing bowl.
In a nonstick pan, place 4 Cups cherries, 2 Tbsp brown sugar, and smoked salt. Saute for 2 minutes to let the juice release. Remove the fruit from heat and add the puree to the mixture. Reduce the liquid and then add to the fruit. Add 2 Tbsp cacao nibs to finish.
