    I reduced the vinegar to 150ml and added a handful of raisins and it was really good. My husband loved it and it's very tasty cold as a pickle. Would probably add a bit more spice next time. There will definitely be a next time though.  -  16 Oct 2012


    So delicious and easy to make! Great to serve with almost any roast, and with sausages.  -  07 Dec 2010
