            Probably one of the best known pickles is Piccalilli. Combine cauliflower, carrots, celery, tomatoes, cucumber, onions and salt in a large bowl, cover, and stand overnight.  Rinse the vegetables well in cold water, drain well.

            Combine the vinegar, sugar, turmeric, mustard, ginger, garlic and chillies in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil, add the vegetables, simmer, covered, for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the blended cornflour and extra vinegar. Stir until mixture boils and thickens. Pour into hot sterilized jars and seal when cold.

Makes about 12 cups.
