This is a sweet solution with a distinct flavour from the juniper berries. It is a good pickling solution for delicate vegetables or for those that require less pickling time, such as those with a higher water content. Red onion, fennel or radish are all good options. As a general rule, this solution is suitable for vegetables that can be eaten raw. For vegetables that you would rarely eat raw, I suggest using a sharper, stronger solution.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250ml apple cider vinegar
250ml cold water
150g caster sugar
1 teaspoon non-iodised salt
3 juniper berries
2 allspice berries
2 bay leaves

Method

  1. Thinly slice the ingredient you are going to pickle (preferably with a mandoline) and set aside in a non-reactive bowl.
  2. Bring all the pickling solution ingredients to the boil in a saucepan then reduce the heat and simmer gently, stirring, for 2 minutes, until all the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Allow to cool, then pour over the ingredient you are pickling.
