“Branston Pickle is a UK favourite that is served in pubs as part of a Ploughman's Lunch. Although this tangy vegetable pickle has lots of ingredients, it is worth the effort. Tastes great with cheeses.”

  5. Spoon into warm sterilized jars and seal.
  6. Leave for at least 3 weeks to let the flavours mature.
