One thing I have learnt is that when you have a glut of something, be that money, veg, meat or whatever, always plan for when it’s not going to be around. I’m pretty good at doing that with everything except money! Quite often on the market you will see big bowls of fruit or veg for £1. It’s reduced because it needs to be eaten quickly so I buy them and preserve them for another day.
This really quick pickle uses a few of the jars stored away in the pantry and is amazing with curry (I quite often have it just simply stirred through cooked rice).
- 1 large preserved lemon (flesh removed & discarded and skin rinsed thoroughly then chopped)
- pickled red cabbage
- pickled cornichons
- bunch of mint
- finely chopped red onion
- teaspoon black onion seeds
- good pinch black pepper
