  • Add jalapeno, peppercorn, fresh herbs, or cumin to the mix if you want to explore the different levels of flavour.
  • You can add food colouring. But don’t add too much food colouring; it ruins the recipe’s taste and colour.

  • You can try an extra cup of vinegar if you want to go for a deeper flavour.
  • You can cut the sausages into halves. You can increase the sausage’s absorption of the vinegar by poking small holes into it before cooking. Use only a clean, sterile jar.
