11. For relish, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Cover and place in fridge to remain cold and for flavors to meld.

22. For soup, melt butter in a medium saucepan until melted. Add apples and onions and and sautee for five minutes or until lightly golden.

33. Add flour and stir into apples and onions and cook for a few minutes. Add apple cider and bring to a boil. Add heavy cream and water. Once boil is achieved, drop to a low simmer, cover and cook for half an hour.
