500g/18oz brambles 140g/5 oz caster sugar* 40g/2oz red onions, sliced 3 Tbs chopped fresh ginger 2 Tbs Dijon mustard 150ml white wine vinegar
Mix all the ingredients, except the vinegar, in a large saucepan. Stir mixture over medium heat until the brambles burst. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the vinegar and allow the mix to simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Cool, transfer to your warmed sterilised jar(s) and seal immediately.
Caster sugar is slightly finer than granulated sugar.
An easy way to sterilise your glass jars, bottles etc., is to place your clean jars, upside down, on a tray lined with kitchen roll in a preheated oven at 150oC - the coolest setting for at least 30 minutes. The containers can also be sterilised in the microwave, but I stick to my tried and tested methodl.
