“Wonderful to serve with meat hot or cold. Don't let the ingredient's and time fool you, its so easy to make, and well worth the effort .........(well I think). I cut the Tabasco back just a little, but only because the family doesn't like things too hot. The yield and servings will depend on the size bottles/jars you use, so it will be more than likely that your yield will differ to mine. Make sure jars are well sterilised and check they have sealed properly.”
