Description[edit]

Branston Pickle is a UK favourite that is served in pubs as part of a Ploughman's Lunch. Although this tangy vegetable pickle has lots of ingredients, it is worth the effort. Tastes great with cheeses.

Ingredients[edit]

Procedures[edit]

  1. Cube the carrots and swede, and finely chop the garlic, dates, cauliflower, onions, apples, zucchini and gherkins.
  2. Combine all the ingredients except the colouring in a large saucepan and bring to the boil; reduce the heat to a simmer.
  3. Simmer until the swede is cooked through but still firm (about 11⁄2 to 2 hours).
  4. Then add the liquid colouring until the colour is dark brown.
  5. Spoon into warm sterilized jars and seal.
  6. Leave for at least 3 weeks to let the flavours mature.
