These grapes are really good! I don't like star anise so I left it out. And I didn't have cinnamon sticks or whole allspice. I substituted 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice. It turned out great! These would be a great addition to the cheese plate during the holidays. They taste like the holidays! Thanks CJ for something so different and good. Read More

Interesting flavor; I think it will be better after more time. After one day they didn't seem "pickled through". Also I had too much liquid by about a cup. Next time I will use more onions: they are my favorite part! Read More
