Paul - Plot 4
Well the weather today is just awful, with 3 more days of rain forecast. So, time to make use of all those surplus cauliflowers and shallots and get pickling! We love Piccalilli in the Price household so when we were in Padstow a couple of years ago we bought some from Rick Stein's shop. It was delicious and so we hunted down his recipe. You can find the recipe here: Paul's Piccalilli
What better way to spend a rainy Friday than to make it. We prepared all the ingredients and soaked them in salt water yesterday so we were all ready to cook them and combine them into a vinegar and mustard concoction. The whole house smells of vinegar now but the result is 12 gleaming jars of golden goodness. They will have matured to their best in 2 - 3 months if we can wait that long. Just in time for our Bonfire BBQ. So look out for it and spread it on your barbecued sausages. Enjoy!
Plot holders cogitate and ruminate about allotment life.
