Peppermint Gum and Apple Pickle

Print is recipe

This tangy, zesty, sweet peppermint and apple pickle with an unusual hit of native Australian Peppermint Gum is the perfect condiment for meats, cheese and delicious addition to sandwiches. As they’re well-known best friends, the minty flavour of this works so well with a classic roast lamb with the slow-cooked apples adding the perfect amount sweetness.

By sealing the jar and leaving for a month before use, it allows the flavours to really mature and marry together well and also creates a slight fermentation that not only adds an amazing flavour but wonderful gut-healing properties too.
