Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.

Instructions

Makes a 6 litre jar or use a variety of smaller jars.

Wash and trim the vegetables, pack into a 6 litre sterilised jar, alternating with the peppercorns and bay leaves.
Combine the vinegar, sugar, water and vanilla salt in a large saucepan. Heat over a medium heat until simmering and the sugar has dissolved.

Pour the hot vinegar over the vegetables and seal the jar. Allow to cool and then store in the refrigerator until required. Keeps refrigerated for 1 month.
