Home Made Pickle RecipesThat most traditional British pickle, Piccalilli, dates right back to the middle of eighteenth century. The first home made pickle recipes being for ‘Indian Pickle or Piccalillo’ in 1747.

It made me smile to see a jar of ‘Traditional Lancashire Piccalilli‘ – no doubt it should be washed down with traditional Yorkshire tea harvested from the tea plantations in the dales.

Pickles can range from the simple single ingredient pickle to quite complex mixed pickles like Piccalilli. The final flavour, especially with the simple pickles, will depend heavily on the vinegar used.

Even if you’re a curry fan who enjoys a red-hot Vindaloo, try not to over spice and overwhelm the flavour of the ingredients. Hot pickles should be warming, not scorching.

Having said that, some people love a pickled onion that blows your head off!
