If you were asked when the first recipe for piccalilli was written when would you go for? Would it surprise you if we told you the first known record of the name 'piccalilli' is by Mrs Raffald who included a recipe for making 'Indian Pickle or Piccalillo’ in her book in 1772? Goes some way to explaining why it has become a true British classic packed full of spice and summertime vegetables.
Our delicious combination of cauliflower, courgette, onion, cucumber and green beans – harvested when they are crunchy and full of flavour are then spiced to deliver a mustardy, sweet and sour pickle with punch. Perfect with sausages, bacon, eggs and all cold meats indoor or out, but be warned this tastes as it should - spicy with more than just a little twang.
