I was given one on another forum a long time ago, but the forum closed before I copied it over.

Rutabagas are an integral part of Branston Pickles. Do you have any?

I grew loads last year, was planning on growing more this year - turnips as they are called where I come from.

Branston PIckle

2½ hours 30 min prep

9 ounces carrots, peeled and cut into small chunks
1 medium swede, peeled and cut into small chunks
4-5 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
5 ounces dates, finely chopped
1 small cauliflower, finely chopped
2 onions, peeled and finely chopped
2 medium apples, finely chopped, unpeeled
2 medium finely chopped courgettes, unpeeled
15-20 small cornichons or gherkins, finely chopped
10 ounces dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 pint malt vinegar
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1. Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring them to the boil.
2. Then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the swede is cooked, but still remains firm, about 2 hours.
3. Stir well to redistribute all of the vegetables.
4. Bottle and seal in sterile and hot jars.
5. Allow the pickle to age for a few weeks before using, this improves the taste and it will become more "mellow".
6. Serve with cheese, ploughman's lunches, in sandwiches, with cold cuts and meats. This pickle is also wonderful when added to curries and stews.

I believe it's this one??

Ready in: 1-2 hrs
1 medium carrot, cut into 1/8 inch cubes
1 cup rutabaga, cut into 1/8 inch cubes
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 dates, pitted and cut into 1/8 inch cubes
3 cauliflower florets, finely chopped
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
1 medium apple, finely chopped
1 medium zucchini, finely chopped
5 sweet gherkins, finely chopped
1/2 pound dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
caramel colouring or "Kitchen Bouquet"

Directions:
Combine all ingredients except caramel colouring in a saucepan. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to a simmer and cook until rutabaga is cooked but still slightly crunchy. Add enough caramel colouring until colour is dark brown. Bottle and seal. I suspect the flavour will improve if aged for a few weeks before using.

Although i think the spices were missing from that one!

Maybe;

9 ounces carrots, peeled and cut into small chunks
1 medium swede, peeled and cut into small chunks
4-5 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
5 ounces dates, finely chopped
1 small cauliflower, finely chopped
2 onions, peeled and finely chopped
2 medium apples, finely chopped, unpeeled
2 medium finely chopped courgettes, unpeeled
15-20 small cornichons or gherkins, finely chopped
10 ounces dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 pint malt vinegar
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring them to the boil.
Then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the swede is cooked, but still remains firm, about 2 hours.
Stir well to redistribute all of the vegetables.
Bottle and seal in sterile and hot jars.
Allow the pickle to age for a few weeks before using, this improves the taste and it will become more "mellow".

One variance i've seen on this one is adding 350 ml Cider vinegar instead of malt vinegar, and 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Hi sorry, forgot about this thread, so far none of the recipes look like they are branston pickle (could be wrong though as I haven't tried them yet)

Well that definitely does resemble Rusties recipe very closely - I would never have thought that dates were in it though - you learn something new every day
