    Pickled chillies are absolutely superb. They are brilliant because they can just sit in the fridge waiting to be used. I particularly like to use them in stir-frying or in broths or to eat them just as they are with some cheese and bread.

    600g/1lb 5oz medium green chillies
    15 black peppercorns
    5 bay leaves
    3 tablespoons coriander seeds
    5 teaspoons salt

    Anyway, the glut. I also stir-fry them, and they add a lovely crunch. In my search for other uses, I have found 47 recipes on the BBC food website

    Make certain you pick the pods on a dry day then pick over to remove any that are hard or blemished.

    combine the salt and 600ml water in a pan. Heat gently, until the salt dissolves then bring to a boil. Add the radish pods and take off the heat. When the pods turn bright green drain and use for pickling.

    If the pods do not turn bright green, strain them, add
