Chop all of the vegetables into even sized pieces and layer in a large bowl with plenty of salt.
Cover the bowl and leave for 24 hours - the salt will drain excess water from the vegetables which will keep them crisp. Do not omit this stage. Remove the vegetables and rinse, drain them well. Blend the sugar, mustard, ginger and garlic with 1 litre / 2 pints of the vinegar in a large pan.
Add the vegetables and bring to the boil - turn down the heat and simmer for about 20 mins until the vegetables are cooked but still crisp.
