Quick pickle of balsamic mushrooms with treviso and parmesan

all details

Mushrooms are delicious when pickled in balsamic vinegar. They have a lovely sweetness that works well with the heat from chilli. This unusual combination of flavours came about one evening out of necessity when the fridge was bare. It turned out to be a success. Give it a try.
