  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup or 200 grams, of 5% vinegar, lemon juice, or a combination thereof
  • 1 cup of carrot grated
  • 50 grams 1/2 cup of cranberries , or lingonberries (if you've somehow magically got 'em)
  • A teaspoon each of black peppercorns whole allspice, whole cloves, and 2-3 bay leaves (or more, to taste)
  • 800 ml of water
