Pickled Magnolia Petals
Magnolia Petals - cleaned & clear of any blemishes
50ml Rice Vinegar
500ml White Wine Vingegar
1 tsp non-iodised Salt
5 tsp Sugar
Dissolve the salt and sugar in the vingegars - do not heat, just stir.
put the prepared magnolia petals into the jar. I make them into a round flower spiral (like a rose) and put it in a jar that is large enough to hold 3 rosettes of petals. I have a 1 litre agee jar and a smaller 5000ml jar...
cover the petals with the vinegar ensuring there is nothing sticking out of the vinegar.
Saal the jar and leave for 4 weeks.
When done, you will have an aromatic, ginger flavoured petal and a beautiful pink vinegar.
