    Very easy and a fantastic side dish to Christmas dinner, or any roast. Will be making again and again!  -  08 Jan 2012


    I will make it again but definitely add WAY less vinegar. 180ml is too much for my taste, the final dish was so extremely sour that I had to add more sugar to balance it out.  -  09 Oct 2014
