Ingredients

1 pound carrots (about 7 medium)

1 red bell pepper

1 medium fennel bulb (about 3/4 pound)

1 small onion

3/4 cup cider vinegar

1/3 cup sugar

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 tablespoons ketchup

1 tablespoon mustard seeds

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 garlic clove, crushed

Directions

  1. With a mandoline or a sharp knife cut carrots into short 1/8-inch thick julienne strips. With a sharp knife cut bell pepper into short 1/8-inch thick julienne strips. In a steamer set over simmering water steam carrots, covered, 5 to 6 minutes, or until crisp-tender, and transfer to a bowl. Steam bell pepper 1 to 2 minutes, or until crisp-tender, and add carrots.
  2. Halve fennel bulb lengthwise and core. Cut fennel into short 1/8-inch thick julienne strips. Halve onion lengthwise and cut into short 1/8 inch thick julienne strips. Add fennel and onion to carrot mixture. In a saucepan bring remaining ingredients to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar, and pour over vegetables. Marinate vegetables covered and chilled, at least 1 hour and up to 1 week. Serve relish chilled or at room temperature with poultry, veal, pork, or lamb.
