“These rustic mushrooms are inspired by Woolworths’ grilled mushrooms in sunflower oil, except I wanted mine tangier and sweeter. I also needed an excuse to use Woolies’ pickling condiment.”


  • 400 g shiitake mushrooms
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup Woolworths lightly seasoned mild pickling condiment
  • a sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 t dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped

Cooking Instructions

1. Heat a braai or a griddle pan. Rub the mushrooms with a bit of olive oil, season and grill for a few minutes or until nice and charred.

2. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and add the mushrooms. Steep overnight before bottling and sealing in glass jars.
