Cucumber pickle

'This recipe is from my mother, Gillian Watson. We used to have it on family picnics in sandwiches or pittas with cream cheese. It is good with a strong, hard cheese or with terrines and cold meats, especially ham.' (Guy Watson) This is easy to make as pickles go.

Serves 4 - Total time 50 min

Tomato and white bean Panzanella

Moroccan spiced carrot dip

Roasting carrots intensifies and caramelises their taste, which works beautifully with this collection of sweet, sharp and spicy flavourings. Serve this dip as a starter with warm pittas, or as part of a colourful mezze spread with a beetroot dip and a red pepper and cherry tomato dip.

Serves 4 - 50 min
