Does anyone have a recipe for piccalilli that contains Mustard, Ginger but does not contain any sugar. I am diabetic but all the recipes I have looked at contain sugar. Used to have one of my gradmothers but lost it during return to uk from Canada

I would be cautious about any pickling recipe that does not include some sugar in the pickling solution. Here are some from diabetic recipe sites that use a minimal (less than 1 cup rather than the usual 4 cups) of sugar.



Here's a recipe where some of the reduced sugar quantity is reduced even further by using Splenda sugar substitute:


It doesn't use ginger, but that can be easily added to the recipe.

Here's some information you may be interested in on the preservation role sugar plays in canning and pickling. It also gives examples of when sugar substitutes can be safely used:


Here's a no-sugar pickling recipe developed by the same site above. You could probably use the same brine for your piccalilli.
