100ml Daily Organics apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
2 star anise, whole
1 punnet of blueberries

In my opinion, blueberries are best enjoyed straight from the punnet or in a bowl with a dollop of Greek yoghurt, but the exception is the pickled blueberry – a snap of sour that will bring out the best in cured meats or selected smoked fish. Here with the oysters, it does the work of lemon juice, balancing the salty, briny taste. This easy pickle can also be used in salads and with various cheeses.
