Note: To pickle Gala apples (enough for about 4 sandwiches): Whisk 1½ cups boiling water with 1½ cups champagne vinegar, ½ cup sugar, and 1 tablespoon salt in mixing bowl. Pour the brine over 4 Gala apples, each cored and sliced into quarters, then half moons. Weigh down and pickle for 30 minutes, no more. Remove and discard the liquid. Apples are good for only one night.
