Pickled baby corn is lovely. I make mine a little differently: I use equal parts water, vinegar and sugar for the brine and don't put in the pickling spices - I like the clean, plain flavour of the corn. Also I am sure to sterilize the jars, and once sealed, pop them back into the boiling water for 10 minutes (250ml jars) just to be safe.
