Brown Pickle

on the theme of the *Ploughmans Lunch* thread.

I was wondering who has a recipe for brown pickle - yellow pickle i am fine for. I did long ago have a brown pickle recipe but I can;t seem to find it.

And i do like Pickle - sorry James!

please don;t suggest googling, i know there are a few recipes out there, but i am sure someone here has a delicious one hidden in up their sleeve.

Found the page - yellowing and not remotely precise I'm afraid but every batch tasted darn good ! Have not made it for years as too lazy but you have inspired me to heave out the preserving pan (Grans of course) and have a jar or two ready in a few weeks !

The golden rule - you must use dark muscavado sugar.

Dice: -
9ozs carrots
Small cauli.
Small turnip
Medium swede

Finely chop:-
5-10 cloves of garlic
2 onions
2 eating apples
2 courgettes or a bit of marrow
20 small gherkins

Add:-
10 ozs. dark muscavado sugar
4 tblsp lemon juice
Salt
3/4 pt. malt vinegar

Grind:
2tsp mustard seed
2tsp allspice

Mix with a tsp. or so of cayenne

Into the pan, up to boil, simmer about 2 hours, pot as usual.

That's about it ! Gran would throw in dates, dried apricots and anything else that needed using up at the time. Sure you will adapt to your own taste.

your gran's recipe Sandra. Sure Nor will ask you to pop it into your profile. It sounds wonderful, looking forward to trying it.

Great that you would like to give it a whirl but now feeling guilty ! Although the ingredients are as stated I have used memory and loose interpretation !
The actual page states " a handful or two" etc. so use your own judgement.
That said the golden rule certainly applies, use anything else and you'll end up with a grey sludge.

Thanks Sandra for sharing your grans recipe.
My son just finish the last jar of Branston and i have been looking for a recipe.

Will have to wait for another visitor from the UK to bring back some sugar for me. The french do a light brown sugar but i will wait for the proper sugar to try it.

Sandra

Liz is quite right. Please put this one in your profile, it sounds absolutely gorgeous, and do doubt we will all be looking for it!

Hi Sue, Look out for "Sucre Vergeoise" in the Supermarch&"233; it is dark brown in colour and quite soft (squeeze the packet) just like Muscavado, I have used it before and it is fine.
Yummy

ps thanks for answering the other thread, Offspring are camping in the UK "Shell Island"
in Wales....hope the weather stays fine for them. Big gang (including their Dad so looks like they will have a good time whatever the weather.

Thanks Yummy, i use this french sugar but i always thought Muscavado was much darker, plus the taste was different.

Think i have been here to long to remember what food from the UK was like
