white vinegar (or apple vinegair)
Peel the butternut pumpkin and cut into quarters length ways. Cut in even strips of 3 x 3 x 100 mm. Put the strips in a colander and lightly salt them and leave for 20 minutes, to get softer.
Make a pickling liquid by mixing all the ingredients for pickling together in a pot, heat it on the stove until the sugar is dissolved.
Rinse the butternut pumpkin strips and put it in the warm pickle liquid until cooled. Leave at least 2 hours in the pickling liquid in the pot or in a mason jar.
