Sweet and Sour Pickles

2kg raw gherkins
4 cups boiled water
1 cup apple cider vinegar
4 cups white vinegar
125ml sweetener
4 tsp salt
8 tsp dried dill
8 cloves of garlic sliced (4 per jar)
2 tbs pickling mix
2 large jar
For water bath:
2 liters water
1/2 cup salt

Prepare gherkins in the way you want to pickle them. We sliced ours in half lengthways. Soak in a water and salt bath for 1 hour.

In a pot, bring vinegar, sweetener, salt, water, dill and pickling mix to the boil. Allow sweetener to dissolve fully.

Throw boiling water in jars, let stand for a few minutes then throw boiling water out. Strain gherkins and add to the jars along with the garlic. Throw hot pickling liquid over the gherkins and into the jars until full.

Allow to stand for 1 week before eating.
