    Quick question. I made these and the first jar only lasted 2 days (so moreish). Can I re-use the vinegar solution to make more?

    I've not done that yet but I have thought about it.

    Think it's worth a try. After all, it's not going to have to last for months is it?

    Its too moreish to last. I've just had it with burgers and while I was waiting for them to cook I was eating out of the jar lol.

    Oh just a thought will I have to re-sterilize the jar or can I just shove them straight in?

    Totally against the rules, but as you're using the same mix I wouldn't bother sterilizing.

    If I've munched through a jar rather quicjkly I just add more courgettes to the vinegar...like you say...it's not like it's got to last

    Also I nearly always end up with a few extra slices of courgettes and a lil too much of the vinegar towarrant sterilising another jar so I just pop them into a plastic tub for quick consumption.

    I've not tried it with Sarsons yet,but as it's that much cheaper than cider vinegar I'll give it a go.

    hey! just made this. although i think my brain must have been on its day off coz i managed to use mixed peppercorns instead of mustard seeds. i'll try 2mo, but hopefully it'll still be lovely!
