3 large large apples (about 1 ˝ pounds, cored but not peeled)
3 large beets (about 1 ˝ pounds, peeled)
2 star anise pods
1 tbsp whole cloves
1 tbsp unrefined sea salt
fermented vegetable starter culture (if desired)
Shred apples and beets by hand, or in a food processor.
Toss the shredded apples and beets together until well-combined and mixed together.
Add the star anise and whole cloves to the apples and beetroot, and continue to toss until the spices are evenly distributed among the shredded fruit and vegetables.
In a mason jar or, preferably, a vegetable fermenter (see sources), layer the apple and beetroot.
Periodically sprinkle unrefined sea salt or vegetable starter culture over the layers of apple and beetroot and mash with a wooden spoon or mallet to encourage the fruit and vegetables to release their juices, creating a luscious brine to encourage the proliferation of beneficial bacteria.
Ferment in a mason jar or vegetable fermenter for a minimum of three to four days, or longer, depending on the level of warmth in your kitchen.
After your apple and beetroot relish has sufficiently cultured, remove it from the vegetable fermenter and gently pick out the star anise pods and whole cloves.
Place the apple and beetroot relish into a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
