    I haven't made it yet, a query, is it okay to bottle and store in a cool place for 3 or 4 weeks before using it?  -  21 Nov 2017


    After reading several reviews I used only 1 piece of root ginger and only half of the vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar), that came out great so the 4 stars I am giving are for the amended recipe with less ginger and vinegar. I also swapped the cardamom for a bit of chilli powder and added 1/2 tsp yellow mustard seed. The amount is definitely way too much for a meal but for bottling it was perfect to make it worthwhile.  -  23 Oct 2017


    It would be useful to give an approximate weight of apples as they vary so much in size. Haven't made it for that reason.  -  20 Sep 2016
