Crunchy sweet pickle
We had lots of runner beans to use up. Most went into the freezer but we have so many runner beans from past years that last year's crop is still being consumed. So, in an attempt to make something different to use some of them up, I decided to make a sweet pickle. This also allowed me to use up some cucumbers, gherkins and onions. The sweet vinegar contained sugar and a few spices. These were boiled up and then the chopped vegetables were added and simmered for about 5 minutes. Everything then went into hot, sterilised jars.
