  • Vegetarian


150ml cider vinegar
3 small echalion shallots, finely sliced
200g light brown muscovado (or soft) sugar

¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
250g cranberries
125g soft rindless goats’ cheese (or cream cheese)

rocket leaves, to serve


1. Put the vinegar in a medium saucepan with the shallots, sugar, ginger, cinnamon and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
