Cover in distilled malt vinegar, then pour everything into a glass jar and cover with muslin cloth. Leave at room temperature for 5 days then pass through a muslin cloth to strain. Store in the fridge until needed. This will make more than you need for this recipe, but you can store the vinegar and use it in other dishes
