    Okay first of all I would like to so thanks for recipe, never been one for piccalilli but when i tasted the sauce/vinegar mix even tho a strong kick on the throat i loved the flavours.

    Now here's a problem I've stumbled across, i followed recipe list to the tee except i couldn't find cider vinegar in tescos so i used pickling vinegar lol.

    Now all piccalilli I've seen the sauce has been a thick/jam like consistency mine is more like a runny vinaigrette, any ideas why?

    Could this be because i used pickling vinegar instead of cider vinegar.

    No Insy, the pickled courgettes aren't meant to be like picalilli. It's not meant to be a thick sauce. The only thing affected by your use of pickling vinegar would be the taste.

    Believe me, it's even nicer with cider vinegar.

    I only down a small batch to test it and i certainly do like the flavour just has a rather sharp kick to it which I'm assuming a little more sugar/honey and cider vinegar will reduce.

    Where do you get your cider vinegar from and for how much/price?

    I fancy making some chutney's as well but the recipes also require cider vinegar, so i definitely must find me some .

    Most Supermarkets have cider vinegar, or try a Deli

    Pickling vinegar is spiced - cider vinegar is not so the taste will be quite different!

    Pickling vinegar is malt vinegar too, I find it very harsh.

    Asda, Tesco and Co-op all do cider vinegar, or you could substitute with white wine vinegar (again stocked by most supermarkets).
