Do you ever watch tv chefs and think ……. ‘That’ll never work?’ so to prove your point you try it out and discover an absolute gem? Becksie does on a regular basis!
The other day Becksie watched her other husband (that’s Jamie Oliver) making pickles. It was so simple that Becksie thought ‘that won’t work’! So this morning whilst Lizzie ate her breakfast Becksie (whilst chatting to Lizzie about its sure failure) made some. She left them whilst they went out and after lunch she tried a sneaky tester! Turns out old Jaime is right and they are AWESOME and so simple! If Becksie had have thought this out she would have realised that her lovely Nana used to do a similar thing! Ok…..
Fill the jar with half water and half vinegar. Remember to consider the vegetables will need room so don’t fill to the top. For the size of jar we used we added 1 teaspoon of salt and one of sugar. Stir.
Add the vegetables and other flavours you fancy, we added mustard seed. Seal and leave for a few hours!
