Bring the remaining ingredients to the boil. Add the vegetables. Bring to the boil once more and boil for just one minute. Remove from the heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the vegetables into clean, sterilised jars. Fill the jars with the vinegar mixture, cool and seal. Store in a dark cupboard.
