  • 2 T fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 star anise
  • 2 T honey
  • 150 g treacle sugar
  • 1 cup red wine vinegar

2. To make the plums, simmer all the ingredients together, covered, for 20 minutes.

3. Slice the brisket and serve with the plums.

Cook's note: Leftover brisket makes delicious sandwiches with tomato and gherkins.
