    Made some this weekend, its all gone already, was Pewsey carnival though to be fair, so lots of beer and food gets consumed. Thanks for sharing this recipe, already picked some more courgettes to top the jar back up.

    Hi All,

    Made some of this at the weekend - delicious! It is meant to be going in hampers as gifts, but somehow I don't think any of these ones will be making it that far, I can't stop eating it!

    Will bring a jar in for the rest of the GYO team to sample... if I can bear to part with one

    Laura

    2.after 1hr drain & dry thoroughly~either in salad spinner or between towels.
    3.Combine pickling mix in saucepan & simmer for 3 mins.set aside until just warm.
    4.Mix courgettes & onion with the cooled liquid.~transfer to sterilised jars.cover & refrigerate for at least a day before eating.
    Will keep indefinately in fridge.

    Absolutely yummy with cheese & crusty bread!
    can also add dried chilli flakes to the mix for an added kick! ENJOY!
    I've made some of this this afternoon, I'm not a great pickle eater but after all the positive posts it would be rude not to try it. I'll let you know tomorrow my expert opinion lol

    I made this a couple of days ago and sampled some tonight with a cheese salad.

    I don't think I'll be worrying about excess courgettes now. They'll all be going to make more of it. It was amazing!

    Oh My goodness!

    This pickle is delicious!
    Thank you for the recipe, for the grapes who reviewed it and made me want to try it and to the grapes who discovered it also works well for cucumbers!
