    I'm running out of courgettes now, so I'm mixing them in with French beans, carrots, onions & beetroot: pickled veg

    Thanks again for the recipe my first jars didn't last very long so this time I've made double the amount.

    I made this last night - jars in fridge now, keeping for a week before trying.
    Has anyone got any tips of how I can sterilize two Edwardian pickle jars (cut glass) to store this pickle in? I don't want to risk them in the oven, dishwasher or microwave - or boil them- as they are too valuable. But it would be nice to use them for pickles!
    Whooops - now what are the dogs getting up to?

    Mix the Milton as the instructions for baby bottles, then leave the jars (thoroughly washed) filled with solution for several hours (overnight?) and when ready to use them, empty out, DO NOT RINSE, and fill immediately.
    I don't think I would bother sterilising for pickles anyway. The vinegar content should be enough, but if you want to, that is the method.
