HOW TO MAKE SAIB KA MURABBA: DELICIOUS,SPICY APPLE CONSERVE
SAIB KA MURABBA – APPLE CONSERVE
This and the carrot conserve are easy to make, and could be given as presents during the festive season. They are both really deliciously different.
6 medium sized yellow apples, peeled and cored, but leave the apples whole
2 glasses of sugar
6 green cardamoms
2 sticks cinnamon
½ inch piece of peeled ginger root left whole
2 tbsps white vinegar
2 tbsps rose water
1 tbsp lemon juice
Prick the apples with a metal skewer so that the syrup can go inside them.
Put the apples in a pan and cover them with water so that the water is two inches above the apples.
Remove the apples and add the sugar to the water and stir so that the sugar is well mixed, then bring to the boil.
Now put the apples in the pan and wait until the apples suck in the sugar and sink.
Add all the other ingredients into the pan, turn the heat down to very low and cover.
Leave the pan for 1 hour or until the syrup falls from a metal spoon in one thread.
Allow to cool and store in an airtight container in a cool dark place.
You can use the syrup in the next batch when you finish the apples.
This has Taste and is a Treat.
