Ingredients for Pickled Cucumber:

Method for Pickled Cucumber:

  1. Wash the cucumbers and wipe clean.  Do not peel unless they are bitter or a variety with a spiky skin.
  2. Cut into slices or dice into cubes.
  3. Layer with salt in a basin, finishing with a layer of salt.
  4. Leave for 24 hours, which will extract lot of the moisture from the cucumber .
  5. Rinse thoroughly in cold water and drain well.
  6. Pack into clean, sterilized jars and cover with spiced vinegar (can be either hot or cold).
  7. Cover and label with contents and date.

Note: Best if left for 4 weeks before using. Goes well with a traditional cold meats mixed salad.

This pickle, kept in properly sterilized and sealed jars, should keep for 6 months in a cool dark place. Once opened, keep in the fridge and try to use within 4 weeks.
