    I want to make this today but I've only got 350ml of cider vinegar, I know could reduce the recipe but would it work if I added 150ml of white wine vinegar. ?

    Should be fine Bren. Vinegar is vinegar. I've been using Tesco 55p white distilled vinegar (with my own spices) and sometimes mix that with 13p Tesco Basics malt vinegar

    I made this on Wednesday. The only thing I did different was to use Sarsons white pickling vinegar. I added the sugar to it and very gently heated it till the sugar dissolved. I have 2 1/2 jars in the fridge and I gave one to my neighbour.

    I tried them today in a cheese sandwich and they were yummy. I wish I had more vinegar to make another few jars (would need more jars as well). Thanks for this recipe

    I'm thinking of using cucumbers to use up my glut so I'm sure you could use gherkins binley.
