Root vegetables, like carrots and beets are great at soaking up lots of flavors and making a great base for a condiment. I found a recipe and then riffed on it, which you should feel free to do also!
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 yellow beets (thinly sliced on a mandolin)
1 large carrot (also thinly sliced)
½ yellow onion (not to big and diced)
2 cloves of Garlic (minced)
¼ cup of dried cranberries
¼ cup of white wine
¾ cup of water
3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 ½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
