500 g Sugar
1. Peel carrots, cut in half lengthwise then into 4cm (1.5 inch) long
pieces. Cut celery into similar sized pieces. Remove seeds from
Capsicums and cut into 2cm (3/4 inch) strips, 4cm long. Break the
cauliflower into 4cm flowerets. Dissolve the salt in cold water.
Dissolve the salt in cold water. Cover the vegetables with this brine
and leave overnight. A clean (new) plastic bucket is a suitable
container. After 12-18 hours drain the vegetables, rinse in cold
water, and allow to drain again.
2. Select jars with glass or enamelled lids. Wash and rinse well,
then dry in a warm oven, 100 deg C.
3. In a large enamel or stainless steel pan combine vinegar, mustard
seed, celery seed, chillies and sugar. Boil for 3 minutes and then
add the carrots and onions and boil for 5 minutes. Fill the warmed
jars with hot vegetables and top up with vinegar to within 1cm (half
inch) of rim. Close lids firmly.
Makes approx 3 litres.
