Cool as a cucumber! Cucumber Pickles

August 18, 2013 by sarah

The cucumber plants in the front garden have been enjoying the sunshine. A few too many came at one time so I made some cucumber pickles. I have never made this before but we need to wait a month before we can try it 🙁

550g cucumbers, sliced in 4mm slices

1 tbsp salt

300ml white wine vinegar

100g granulated sugar

1 tsp yellow mustard seeds

3 garlic cloves thinly sliced

In a large bowl layer the cucumber and salt, cover and leave overnight. The next day, rinse well under cold water and dry on kitchen paper.

In a saucepan combine the rest of the ingredients and heat gently until sugar dissolved. Bring to the boil and add the cucumber, bring back to the boil and pot up immediately in hot sterilised jars. It made 2 of these kilner type jars from Ikea.
