    I'm going to give this a go too!

    I tried making bread and butter pickles with cukes but they seem to take on too much vinegar (as opposed to the gherkin varieties) but I used normal pickling vinegar and white vinegar so maybe cider vinegar would pack slightly less punch!

    I made this a few weeks ago and my wife loves it.

    So much so that another batch was made this weekend and more will be made once we collect a few more jars.

    Experimented with a thicker cut and some chilli flakes in some jars this time.

    Made something similar from a recipe from the Crown and Castle Hotel (owned by scary woman Ruth Watson, ex-'Hotel Inspector' on Channel 4) and couldn't work out how to get the excess moisture out after salting the courgettes - now I know to use my salad spinner - genius! Thanks for the tip. I'll make some more with my never-ending supply of courgettes; great with the mix of yellow 'One Ball' and ordinary green, and a couple of red chillies.

    Hi andi&di.
    When you say dry mustard, would colm^ns mustard powder be the right stuff to use.
    Thanks in advance.

    I have a feeling I'll be making this tonight (I haven't been to pick any courgettes for 5 days (12 plants ...!)

    edit: made it with 1400g courgettes and 100g onions. Also popped a few tiny garlics in.
