Nigel Slater’s pickle recipe

Nigel Slater’s pickle recipe

Pickled peaches

Leave the fruit in the boiling water until it is quite soft and tender enough to eat. No amount of time spent in the vinegar is going to soften hard fruit. You could use apricots instead of peaches, but I wouldn’t bother to skin them. Sterilising your preserving jars is essential. Wash them with hot soapy water and turn upside down to drain. Place them, correct way up on an oven tray then leave in preheated oven (180C/gas mark 4), for 10 minutes. The lids may distort in the oven, so let them sit in a pan of boiling water for 10 minutes, then drain on a clean tea towel before filling the jars with the hot preserve and sealing them.

 

Makes 2 x 900ml preserving jars
peaches 8, slightly under-ripe
lemon ½
cider vinegar 750ml
granulated sugar 450g
juniper berries 8
black peppercorns 12
coriander seeds 1 tsp
bay leaves 4

Put a large pan of water on to boil. Cut the peaches in half, remove the stones then lower the fruit into the water. Add the lemon to the water and leave the peaches for 3 or 4 minutes. The peaches are ready when they can be pierced effortlessly with a skewer and the skins can be removed easily.

Put the cider vinegar in a non-reactive saucepan over a moderate heat, add the sugar, juniper berries, lightly crushed, the peppercorns, coriander seeds and bay leaves. bring to the boil, then remove from the heat.

Lift the peaches out of the water with a draining spoon. Peel the skins from the fruit and discard them. Cut each peach half in two then put them into the sterilised jars. Pour the pickling syrup and aromatics over, seal and leave to cool. The peaches can be stored for several weeks, and are ready within three days.
