Stocking Up


This morning was spent replenishing my husbands stock of piccalilli.  We have not had shop bought for a couple of years now since I found out how easy it was to make and usually make two batches a year. My piccalilli does have more of a brown colour to it rather than the bright yellow seen in shops and that is due to the recipe using malt vinegar rather than white. I can't find the exact recipe which I found on line but this piccalilli recipe is very close to the one I use. The only difference is that I use 50g less sugar, don't use coriander seeds and I salt the veg before hand.

Hello Shell: I have been following your blog for awhile now, and I think this is the first time I have commented. As you can see, I'm reading some of your older posts. I was looking for a good piccalilli recipe so thanks for the link. I'm also looking for a good branston-pickle-type one - do you happen to know of one?

Hello Carol, I've not made it myself but I had a quick look in my cook books and found one for ploughman's pickle. It won't be exactly the same but I can sent it to you if you think it will be any use.

Hello Shell: If it isn't a bother, I would love to take a look at it!
Thank you!
