This is a recipe I got years ago from an old friend. I rediscovered it while cleaning out an old recipe box. It's a delicious appetizer or addition to a relish platter. Also very easy. Cooking time is refrigeration time.

  1. Combine all ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil.

  3. Pour hot mixture into a heat safe container and cover tightly.
  4. Refrigerate at least 12 hours, but 24 is better.

This is a fabulous make-ahead recipe! I've make it twice, once with the white wine vinegar, and once with cider vinegar. Both are great, and a nice palette cleansing addition to a buffet.
