My Mums Pickling Vinegar



Pickled Birds Eye Chillies 

Mum made magnificent Pickled Chillies, in fact when I was pregnant with our Son, I couldn't get enough Country Cheese biscuits with loads of butter and sweet, hot Pickled Chillies. This Pickling Vinegar works for any type of chilli, as you probably know Chillies are such prolific growers and this is a great, simple way to preserve the Chillies. We use these Pickled Chillies to add a bit of heat to dishes, its a great addition to sandwiches and we also use the vinegar over fish and chicken, its just delicious. Spicy and Sweet. I store the Pickling vinegar in an empty vinegar bottle or glass jar until it is needed.
By the way, I have never left the Pickling Vinegar for a week  before bottling or using, I am usually in too much of a hurry to use it
