This compote is delicious on burgers, but it can also be spread on turkey sandwiches or eaten alongside pork chops or ham steaks.

  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  2. 1/3 cup minced Vidalia or other sweet onion
  3. 4 Empire apples, peeled and finely chopped
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons minced crystallized ginger
  5. Pinch of dried sage
  6. 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  7. 2 tablespoons sugar
  8. Salt
  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the apples, ginger, sage, vinegar, sugar and 1/4 cup of water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat until the apples are very tender, stirring and mashing occasionally, about 10 minutes. Season the compote with salt.
