Instructions

  • Dissolve sugar in vinegar over low heat. Once dissolved add spices and seeds. Remove from heat. Once cool store in a glass bottle. I used an empty vinegar bottle. Will keep for weeks - the flavour improves with age.
  • Try pickling red onion, fennel, cauliflower and broccoli. Any vegetables as long as it is finely sliced. Leave the vegetables in the liquid for a minimum of 30 minutes.
