  • Heat the vegetable oil in a stainless steel saucepan.
  • Add the cumin and nutmeg and stir around in the hot oil to release their wonderful aroma, but do not burn.
  • Next add the onions and continue to cook for a further 2-3 minutes finally add the garlic and cook for a further 1 minute.
  • Add the cranberries and apples, sugar and some salt and pepper and stir well.
  • Pour in the vinegar and cold water and bring to the boil and turn down the heat and simmer gently for about 25 minutes.
  • When nearly all the liquid has evaporated, check the seasoning and adjust if necessary. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the olive oil and leave to cool.
  • Its as simple as that.
