Well done Johanna, keep on going.
We liked the look of this recipe and thought we would give it a go. Mind you, it seems to use an enormous amount of sugar which we were unsure of so reduced it greatly. Could have been a huge mistake.
We had one jar full of gherkins and used another empty jar of similar size to begin. In the bowl are the sliced gherkins and 2 chilli's with seeds removed. We also used one onion, three carrots 2 cloves of garlic whole (for one jar) and two cloves of sliced garlic for the other:
After a week (and decanting half of one jar into the other), it looked like this:
Verdict: Very nice! We did however wonder if a tablespoon of vinegar in each jar would help counter the sweet taste as well as add a bit extra protection for short time storage.
