Week 25: Pickling my Produce (Cucamelons & Shallots)…

Well, moving into Autumn and decided to try and pickle some of my produce. (Red Sun Shallots and Cucamelons) have done well but to keep them “fresh” into the Winter, found a really simple recipe online. (And a fresh Vine leaf scrunched up and added to the mix (to release the tannin which help keep the fruit crisp!?).

Ingredients for Pickling: White wine vinegar, sugar, salt, Italian dried herbs, Mustard Seeds and Peppercorns.
