      This recipe sounds delicious. I live in Ireland and coconut vinegar and sugar are not so easy to get here. Can you recommend alternatives which are still paleo??

      Hi Mo,

      You could alternate with raw/organic honey for the sugar and rice wine vinegar for the coconut vinegar.

      Hi Mo,

      You could use raw honey instead of the coconut sugar and rice wine vinegar instead of the coconut vinegar.
