I Want to Share....x

This is so simple and really I just made it because it looked lovely!But what a revelation!

It is just wonderful! I was truly won over when I ate one of these! The sweetness, the Christmassy spice, the enticing warmth of ginger and chilli! Perfect!

I can't wait to eat it with my Boxing Day ham! I can't wait to open a jar and sit it prettily in amongst my buffet! Please make it! It is ridiculously easy and once you have the ingredients you could make a few batches to give with a big cheery knowing smile!


2 x 400g cans peach halves in syrup
1 x 15ml tablespoon of rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
2 short sticks cinnamon
1 x 4cm piece of ginger, peeled and sliced thinly into rounds
1/2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
1/2 teaspoon Maldon salt or 1/4 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
3 cloves

Serving Size : Serves approx. 8 people

Sling all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Allow to bubble for a couple of minutes, then turn off the heat. Serve with ham. Keep left overs in a jar in the fridge.

I have put mine straight into jars, which I will keep in the fridge to serve cold with buffet on Boxing Day.
