6 CARROTS, peeled and cut into thin sticks
½ CAULIFLOWER, sliced into small bite sized florets
3 cups (750ml) APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

Sterilise your jars by filling them with freshly boiled hot water then, after a few minutes, carefully tip out the hot water. Soak the lids in hot water as well.
Tightly pack each type of vegetable separately into a sterilised jar.
Place all the ingredients for the pickling liquid into a large saucepan. Place over a high heat and bring to a rolling boil.
Pour the boiling hot pickling liquid and spices over the vegetables. The pickling liquid should completely cover the vegetables.
Note: If you need more liquid you can just heat up a little more cider vinegar and water with some sugar and pour it over the top. Seal the jars with a tight fitting sterile lid. These pickles are ready to eat in a couple of days, if you can wait that long! Store them in the refrigerator.
