3. With foil or plastic wrap cover the colander, set aside at room temperature for 12 hours to allow the excess moisture to drain off.
4. Discard the liquid and return the vegetables to the bowl.
5. In a small enameled or stainless-steel saucepan, bring the vinegar, water, brown sugar and mustard seeds to a boil over high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves completely.
6. Pour the hot vinegar mixture over the vegetables and turn them about with a spoon until they are evenly moistened.
