Great site for recipes:) I've tried beetroot relish, green tomato chutney, curried apple chutney, plum jam and am just going to try pickled cucumber all with great success.

Would it be alright to slice the cucumbers length wise as mine are minature cucumbers and leave fairly large as you see in the shops
