pickled piper

dark green "courgettes" on sale by the bunches.
waiting for mustard, vinegar and a refrigerator.
at least, that's what they were softly humming about.
right before i scooped them up
and put them in my basket.

the brine is simple.
this time i used one tablespoon of sugar.
my next go, i'll use two.

murky yellow.
for me: they taste like summer last year.

for you: well worth the easy try...

i'm very much into your lower sugar version, though sugar is a preservative, have you stored these for any length of time in the fridge or are you eating them right away?

Hi Seth,
I don't know how long they are supposed to last *with* the sugar, but seems like we've had these in the fridge for three weeks and they were still fine. I'm not sure past then only because they were gone! But *definitely* preferred the less sweet flavour!
