  4. 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
  5. 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, drained

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the red wine vinegar, water, rice vinegar, sugar, mustard, miso, horseradish, peppercorns and bay leaves and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Let cool to room temperature.
