Im sorry I didnt add a photo. However, the recipe was my base for my additions. I added coconut sugar, salt and pepper to taste, I didnt have cloves so I used allspice and chopped onions. I did a second round with a pound of fresh beans, a fresh onion, cut carrots kinda thick. and a pound of bacon cut into pieces. This was well worth it as my family wiped out 2 pounds of bean salad in one session.
