Chicory is a forced radicchio, which results in a sweeter, more tender leaf than the usual, incredibly bitter (but equally delicious) radicchio. They’re delicious fresh and pickled, and we use both chicory and radicchio en-masse at the restaurant. If you can’t get hold of chicory, then radicchio works well.

1
Divide the chicory into individual leaves by cutting off the root at the base and separating them out. Gently pack them into a sterilised Kilner jar
2
Add the vinegar, sugar and salt to a saucepan and place over a medium heat
3
In a separate frying pan, add all of the spices and place over a medium heat. Keep heating the spices until the oils are released and there’s a lovely scent of warm spices. A good indicator that this is happening is when the mustard seeds start to jump out of the pan!
4
Add the spices to the vinegar pan and bring to a simmer (if it isn't already). Stir through, remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature
5
Cover the chicory in the vinegar, seal and leave for a minimum of 7 days before serving
