A tangy citrus taste that especially complements fish. Sets like jam. I often remelt a small amount, add a little fresh lemon juice and pour over grilled fish. This unusual pickle makes a good gift. Excellent with cold meats, chicken and fish.

this recipe turned out exactly like you said it would. I hate the taste, makes my face contort something awful :) BUT it is very interesting and people I have asked to try it have said they can see potential. two friends and I make jams and preserves, (especially strange ones) and package them well, and sell them in some local craft stores. I think this one is a winner, even though it isnt really my thing. I will add your hints to the tag, and I might even try it myself with some chicken or fish, one day :) thanks
