- Label with date, place in a cool dark place for at least one month, mine are for Christmas! Great with cheese or cold meats.
- You can use button onions or pearl onions,if using pearl onions substitute white vinegar for malt and omit sugar.
- My sister reminded me of dads alternate to extra chillies, add a piece of root ginger (fresh or dried) or a good pinch of ground ginger. (Add at step 5) if you like a real bite, add ginger and chillies!!
- Made a batch using balsamic vinegar, taste great but the shallots are very dark in colour.
