Would anybody have a tried and tested recipe for Sweet Mustard Pickles? I have never made this before, but would be keen to try it.

2 Colanders any mixed vegetable such as cauliflower, green tomatoes, onion, cucumber, celery, beans.
125g salt to 2.5 litres water
1.25 litres vinegar
60g mustard powder
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons flour
2 level teaspoons tumeric

1] Cut vegetable up small and soak all night in brine - 125g of salt to 2.5 litres of water. Drain, cover with weak vinegar and water and boil until tender but not soft. Drain
2] In a separate saucepan, prepare the mustard mixture - bring the vinegar to the boil add the dry ingredients. Add the vegetables and boil again for a few minutes.
Mix the dry ingredients with vinegar to make a thin paste and add that with the vegetables before bringing the mix to the boil again.

I use chokoes to help make up the amount of vegies needed. They absorb all the flavours well. unfortunately haven't had any chokoes for a few years due to frosts, must try again next spring

Just chopped 3 kilo green tomatoes, to use in this recipe

Sweet Mustard Pickle.

1.5kg green tomatoes, 2 large onions, sliced and layered in a bowl with 1/4 cup of salt. Allow to stand 24 hours and then drain.
Place in a saucepan with 2 cups sugar and 1 1/4 cups white vinegar, stir until sugar dissolves, bring to boil for 3 minutes.
Combine 2 Tablespoons flour, 2 teaspoons dry mustard, 1 teaspoon curry, pinch cayenne, 2 teaspoons tumeric and mix to a paste with 3 tablespoons vinegar. Add this paste to vegies, stir until boils and thickens, boil 3 minutes and bottle while hot.

Will do 3 more kilo tomorrow, and also a small batch with no onion for an alergic friend. This recipe used to have other vegies, but I dropped them out, as the main point of making it, for me, is to use up the green tommies at the end of the season.

And, just taking a moment to brag, I took out first prize at the aggi show last year with this. Mind you, the only other entry in the section came a close second.

Impressed!

I made a similar recipe but must have used more/too much salt. It was too salty to be edible. I made the same recipe again but washed the tomatoes after the overnight salting. This second batch is delicious. I doesn't have flour. You just reduce it to the consistency you want. Great way to use up those green tomatoes.
