ickling is a great way to preserve produce in times of plenty, but with garlic there is an added benefit, since the vinegar softens the harsher notes of its sometimes overpowering flavour. This gentler, sweeter garlic is tasty on its own, but bring it to life with a burst of good hot chilli balanced by a cool green parsley and it becomes a delicacy. An excellent ingredient for spicy Italian or Asian dishes and an exquisite snack.

Except perhaps that same tomato, harvested at perfect ripeness then dried in the sun and preserved in oil with garlic and basil. Slice finely and add to salads to give both a splash of Mediterranean colour and a burst of intense, summery flavour.

Pickled in white wine vinegar, with mustard and coriander seeds, aromatic tarragon and deliciously tart caper berries, our cornichons are bite-sized treats with a tendency to be moreish. Bon appetit!
