  1. Preheat oven to 180 ºC (350 ºF). Combine mushrooms, olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt on a large roasting tray and roast for 10-15 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, combine remaining salt, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and black pepper in a small saucepan (add thyme and lemon zest now, if using) and heat over low heat, stirring until the sugar has just dissolved.
  3. Remove mushrooms from the oven and stir through the pickling mixture immediately. Pack mushrooms into a large glass jar, along with the pickling liquid. While they can be eaten in as little as 30 minutes, for the best flavor, refrigerate at least 1-2 days before eating. They will store in the fridge for up to 1 month.
