Light cucumber pickle

We have totally run out of pickle. Feeling in the need for something to add to our sandwiches, we had a go at making this lightly pickled cucumber, the recipe for which can be found here.

What can we say, it does what it says. It is super quick to make and tastes light and bright. As the vinegar is diluted with some water is is not so astringent as some of these quick pickles can be. Here it is:
Just about to add the liquid. We omitted the chilli on this first batch as we wanted to taste it on its own.

It went in the fridge for about 1/2 an hour, then we started eating. It stayed crisp for just under a week, after that period it had lost its crunch but was still lovely. We ate it by the forkful!


  1. Thanks for that link. I was just thinking last night what to do with all the cucumbers we are getting at the moment, this will make a brilliant change from having them either sliced or in Nutriblasts. :-)

    1. It is a nice taste , not acidic at all.
