“A strong family support group led Heather-Lee Holliday to share her very delectable vinegar dessert. It is her grandmother’s recipe that has “always been a winner”. She tells of the amusing sibling rivalry that breaks out – between her dad, her aunt and her uncle – over the leftovers for breakfast. Ingredients are easy to find; most of us have them in the pantry cupboard. This cheerful dish has a true South African sweetness to it. Try it and you’ll know the reason it’s a family favourite.”
