Ingredients

For the Veggies

  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Baby Courgettes
  • 1 Yellow Courgette
  • 6 Round Salad Radishes
  • 1 Corn on the Cob
  • 5 Chard Stalks
  • 8-10 Runner Beans
  • 2 tbsp sea salt

For the Pickling Liquid

  • 750 ml Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 50 g Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Black Peppercorns
  • Spices (garlic powder, black mustard seeds)

Instructions

  • Sterilize & dry your jars - I just put ours in the dishwasher! 
  • Chop, slice or dice your veggies and put in a large bowl with the sea salt crystals.  Leave while you boil the pickling liquid.
  • In a large saucepan (NOT COPPER!) pour in the vinegar, sugar, peppercorns and spices if you are using them.  Bring to the boil.
  • Pack the veggies into the jars, right up to the top.  Pour over the hot pickling liquid, enough to cover the veggies and leave to cool before sealing the lids.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 5 months, discarding if the veg becomes slimy or the liquid is cloudy or becomes mouldy.
