The filled jar (ikea jars Leak!! Grrrr!):

1/ All ingredients were washed and sliced
2/ everything was blanched in boiling water for not more than 2 mins, probably less.
3/ A cup of White Wine vinegar, half a cup of sugar, and a teaspoon of salt were boiled up gently until everything was dissolved.
4/ The preserving jar was packed tightly with all the ingredients and the hot vinegar solution poured over to cover and the jar sealed.

5/ *remember not to put anything you care about in an Ikea Jar!* I’ll have to transfer the contents to a real jar at some point if I don’t eat everything within a month! 🙂

BTW, I did see something like this recipe done on www.chillisgallore.co.uk but I forget who did it, thanks for the idea 🙂

nearly forgot, here’s the Rocoto I put in with all its lovely black seeds 🙂
