For a chunkier pickle, chop the giardiniera by hand. You’ll have lots left over to use in sandwiches and burgers or with a plate of cheese. It will keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks in a sterilised jar – find out how to sterilise jars with this easy guide.
You need to begin this recipe 2 days ahead to let the giardiniera (see Know-how) pickle properly.
