I'm giving this 3 stars because I think the basic ingredients are good, it just needs more of everything. More vinegar, I used both apple cider & red wine,and more spices I just kept adding as it cooked. I also added a few juniper berries. It needed to cook A LOT longer then 1/2 hour, 3+ hours. Will do it in the crock pot next time.
