This is my gran's recipe. It makes a good amount, so be prepared to give some of it away - perfect for Christmastime. Serve with cold cuts, cheese or a Ploughman's lunch.

Used different ingredients. I used crushed mustard seeds instead of powder. This took away the "heat" of proper mustard piccalilli, but my kids don't like anything too spicy! In general one whole cucumber weighs about a pound, so I halved the other veg to keep the proportions right. I got 6lbs of pickle from this recipe. - 18 Dec 2008
This is not a good recipe! Unless you like mushy pickled vegetables! After buying the califlower, onions, spices and using the cucumbers from my garden, then chopping everything, the whole thing turned to "mush" after simmering for 20 minutes. I binned the entire thing!!! It didn't even taste that good either. Yuck!! Not a good recipe to try!! - 21 Jul 2008
