Apple Relish (Mrs. H. Offner)
- 1 banana chilli (because I'm a great, big chilli wuss), cored and deseeded
- 500g green apples, peeled and cored
- 500g brown onions, peeled
- 1 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup castor sugar
- 3/4 tblspn salt
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- sterilised bottles or jars
This recipe turned out to be very cheap and quick to make. It was also very economical, producing two jars full. I don't forsee myself going through even one jar so I may have to give the other to my Mum.
I would be very interested to see if using my food processor produced the same texture and consistency as using a mincer. I do wonder if a mincer would create a more juicy mixture and make it hold together in a different way. Really, the food processor just produce tiny sliced up bits of each of the vegetable ingredients. I don't have a mincer of any kind at home so I made do with the food processor.
I ate the relish atop of pork sausages after the prescribed two days and enjoyed the flavour very much. I haven't found any other way of using the relish as yet - if you have any ideas let me know!
Mrs H. Offner
In December 1932 a Mrs H. Offner attended a kindegarten college graduation ceremony - was this as a graduant or a parent/friend to a graduant? The Courier Mail unfortunately didn't provide any details in the article.
There were also a few reports of a Mrs H. Offner assisting in fundraising events on the Northside of Brisbane, including attendance (as a committee member of the R.S.S.I.L.A) of a Bridge Night at Nundah in August 1939 to raise funds for Kingshome and running the drinks and ice-cream stall at a Virginia Carnival to raise funds for the Australian Comforts Fund in September of 1941.
In May 1940 a Mrs. H. Offner was the president in attendance at a fund raiser in Virginia to raise funds for the scouts and cubs' new hut. Some of the attractions at the fete included 'Rides in a breeches buoy', 'fire-lighting by friction' and 'chariot races'.
