Courgette Pickle



4 red or yellow capsicum finely diced

1.3kg grated courgette

1 tsp mustard powder

1 tsp turmeric

3 cups white vinegar

3 cups sugar

2 tsp cracked black pepper


Boil together the vinegar, sugar, black pepper, mustard powder and turmeric for 30 minutes

Add the grated courgette and finely diced capsicum. Bring back to the boil for approx. 10-15 minutes until the courgette is just starting to soften

Wash and dry glass jars and then sterilise in the oven. Using a slotted spoon fill the jars with the pickle. Push the courgette down in the jar to remove air bubbles and pack it into the jar tightly before sealing

Store in a cool dark place until ready to eat and then keep in the fridge

Recipe makes 6 x 250ml jars
