  1. Wash the sprouts and remove any damaged outer leaves.
  2. Wash your jar with hot soapy water and leave to dry.
  3. Fill the jar with sprouts gradually to ensure you fit in as many as possible. Make sure that the sprouts are at least 4 cm from the rim of the jar as the sprouts tend to get larger when they absorb the water and you want them to be immersed in water after sterilisation.
  4. Add salt then fill the jar with water, 2cm from the rim.
  5. Sterilise for 1 hour.

Serving suggestion:
Drain and cut the sprouts in half and simply gently fry in a pan with butter. You could add fresh ginger or smoked pancetta and cooked quince. You can discard the juice as it is rather strong however some say drinking it is very good for helping the body "detox".

« Dear Howard, yes it does mean 1 hour @ 100 degrees Celsius with a water bath heat treatment. In case you are using a pressure cooker or a pressure canner you may reduce the heat treatment time by about 15 minutes. »

« The recipe says 'sterilise for 1 hour'. Does this mean 1 hour @ 100 degrees C (i.e. water bath treatment) or does it refer to pressure cooking or other sterilisation? »
