1 sm onion
500ml cider vinegar
1&1/2 tsp dry mustard
1&1/2 tsp crushed yellow & brown mustard seed
1 tsp ground turmeric
Pinch of dried chilli flakes
Slice courgettes & onion very thinly into discs (easier with a mandoline!). Place in bowl, add salt & mix well. Cover with very cold water & stir to dissolve salt.
After 1hr drain & dry thoroughly, either in salad spinner or between towels.
Combine pickling mix in saucepan & simmer for 3 mins. Set aside until just warm.
Mix courgettes & onion with the cooled liquid. Transfer to sterilised jars. Cover & refrigerate for at least a day before eating.
Fab with cheese and biscuits; on sandwiches, or straight from the jar!
