Hi there - I cannot get to my recipes at the mo (earthquake...) but someone may have the Pretty Pickles recipe? It is an Alison Holst one and has zukes or cukes and peppers in it.Good luck.

'Zukes & Cukes Pickle' - great marketing name!

I have only recently wrestled this recipe off my aunt - it is gorgeous, but having only just read the ingredients properly, I realise it uses cucumbers not zucchini.Surely it could be an easy ingredient swap?

Christmas Pickle–Alison Holst
6 – 8 c finely diced cucumber (unpeeled, seeds discarded))
¼ c salt (plain)
2 – 3 c water (use 2 c first for soaking)
4 onions finely diced
2 – 3 red peppers finely diced
3 c sugar
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp mustard seed
2 c white vinegar
2 -3 tbsp cornflour (often need more – add less water)

Leave chopped cucumber overnight in salt and water.
Drain well and discard liquid. Rinse well and drain.
Put all ingredients except cornflour and 1 c water into large pot and bring to boil, stirring constantly.
Mix cornflour with water and thicken (take off heat).
Pour into sterilized jars and seal.

sumstyle, I used to make almost the identical recipe using zucchini and gave small jars of it as Christmas gifts because of the red and green.It was good with crackers and cheese, or stirred through pasta.

However, my family found it to be overly sweet and I've stopped making it - they are all chilli freaks ;)

Mmm - the aunt didn't make it this year - thus the reason for giving up the recipe I suspect!I loved getting a jar cos it was so nice with cheese and crackers.

Anyway, this Christmas I made her some chili jam - she loves it, and it has been a nice change from the Christmas pickle.

I'm useless and growing cucumbers, but so good at the courgette raising, so I'm glad to hear you've used them in this recipe.
